We can say without smiling or laughing that we knew Gerald Ford . . . . . and, they are no Gerald Fords!!
Amen to that my friend. One of my fondest memories of my youth is making eagle scout and receiving a letter of congratulations from President Ford. One of the few things I still have from my youth, and I dug it out the other day for another look and brought a smile to my face remembering the feeling of getting a letter from a sitting President on that event of my life.

You were an Eagle scout!? Wow, congratulations, I'm impressed. I was a scout (not a very good one) and I know what it takes to make Eagle.
It's too bad that he leftists decided to attack the Boy Scouts - they were and are a VERY valuable (and greatly missed) source of well-mannered, responsible, respectful young men nd leaders. It's too bad that the BSA became a target of the leftist "do-gooders", we need the Boys and Girl Scouts back

When I made First Class Cadette in Girl Scouts President Ford also sent me a letter of congratulations, which was framed and hung in my room for years. I still have it.
