“I always felt there was something missing from my badge sash,” wrote Life Member Mary Jo Sirling of California, prior to earning FFRF’s Freethought Badge. “My sash has the 39 Girl Scout badges that I earned, but it was time for me to receive the 40th. I have been working on this badge for 79 years and I have always been a good citizen in ‘thought, word, and deed’ as my 1950 Girl Scout Handbook states. And here I am wearing my Freethought Badge. My Girl Scout Handbook had no directions about where to place it, so I put it at the top of my badge sash. Obviously, that is where it belongs.”
