Eagle Scout (1969), 12 years as a Scouter, consistent contributor to the local Council: All to be undone if this decision is made.
No more contributions.
Scouter uniform will be packed away.
Eagle metal will be returned to BSA National.
I only got as far as Webelos but have been Den Leader, Asst Cubmaster, Asst. Scoutmaster and Scoutmaster over the last ten years. One son is Life and just got initial approveal for his Eagle project, Son no 2 is Star.
I’m beyond disappointed and upset at an organization I’ve come to love and respect.
So they lost financial support from UPS and Intel. Big deal. Change happens. Lay off some staff, take a pay cut, raise annual fees a few bucks, go look for financial support from conservative leaning companies. Loud and strong-Stand for your principles. When all else fails-Stand.
No more contributions. . .agreed. Pack away Scout uniforms. . .agreed. Return Eagle metal. . rethink that one.
You earned it. . .let it be a memorial of what the Scouts once were. Under no circumstances could I give up mine. . . but I admire the sentiment and agree with it wholeheartedly. Just remember we are all fighting to renew our nation and to fight the Left. . . .I think we all believe that things can change for the better. . .if they do, and the Scouts stand tall again, I think you might regret not having your metal.
