Spot on. Our Scout leader served on Tarawa and Iwo, and he made men of us, in spite of our self. He kept in touch with me when I was in the Corps.

Different era my friend. One that I miss sorely.

Scouting, athletics, hell, even school was more more than just attending and getting grades. It was to prepare us for manhood.

Too bad education became feminized.
