I was, of course, a boy scout in the 50s.
Yes, it was god and country back then.
No doubt they will soon change their name to “Pioneers”,
the Commie version of the Boy, as well as Girl Scouts.
Did the Scout enrollment boom come from the Baby Boom? I’d like to see what percentage of boys that could be scouts, are scouts. That would mean more. Economic factors may affect this as well (my brother was a Scout, but my folks were not wealthy enough to support me being a Scout too).
