A heart warming story indeed. Scouting could help revitalize Iraq as much as all the money being poured into it on so many fronts.
Teach boys to be honest men of good will and skill sets and Iraq will have a future. Imagine a Girl Scout movement in the future.

(I still believe Duncan Hunter would have been the best solution... during this interim in time....)
Girl Guides are a part of it right now.

I worked with the Green Zone Council in 07-08 while I was in the I.Z. It was challenging reestablishing Scouting in Iraq, nothing is easy or simple there. It was also alot of fun. We had an event in the Embassy and it was strange to to see kids there.
