Vigil Honor

Alertness to the needs of others is the mark of the Vigil Honor. The Vigil Honor is the highest honor awarded in the OA. It is given to people who go above and beyond the call to service. These members have contributed greatly to the BSA and/or OA. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation. Any member of the Order of the Arrow, who has been Brotherhood for at least two years, is eligible for nomination. If you know someone who is worthy please nominate them; if you do not, one who should be honored may not be honored.
