|Two Crew In The Brotherhood|
While Ordeal, or entry-level membership consists primarily of physical impressions of the Order, the Brotherhood ceremony is one of deeper and quieter mental impressions. Ordeal members are entitled to all the same rights and privileges of membership in the Order of the Arrow as Brotherhood and Vigil Honor members - there are no ranks within the Order - moving on to Brotherhood membership offers an opportunity to reaffirm belief in the high purposes of the Order. Before becoming a Brotherhood member, each Arrowman makes a special effort to serve his unit. Each Brotherhood member commits to even more service to Scouting through the Order. Arrowmen may "seal" their membership after a minimum of ten months by demonstrating their knowledge of the traditions and obligations of the OA.
