I was surprised and honored with receiving the Unit Leader Award of Merit
last Monday night (May 3, 2010).
(According to our DE and his boss, I'm the first Scouter in Cleveland to get this award....very humbling)
I did not hold the SM Award of Merit.
The knot background is dark blue with metalic gold thread for the knot/border.
The award winner also is allowed to wear a special SM patch with a metalic gold border and an embroidered star above the BSA symbol.http://www.scoutstuff.org/BSASupply/Ite ... TLEADEREMB
