At the 2004 NOAC, the National OA Committee announced a new award aimed at honoring the Order’s heritage of service. To earn the Leadership in Service Award, an Arrowman provided 8 hours of service to his/her local camp and provided 6 hours of community service through a lodge or chapter run community service project.
The award could be earned three times. The first time an Arrowman earned the award, he received a blue ribbon with a suspended red arrowhead attached at the bottom. The ribbon could be worn as a temporary device on the field uniform. Arrowmen earning the award subsequent times would be awarded with a device to wear on the ribbon. The Leadership in Service Award was active for the years 2005-2007.
