Okay, all of you forum propriety Nazis, you will all complain that this isn't in the proper forum and today, I really don't give a hang!
Today is Scout Sunday, celebrated throughout the land, except, probably, in those churches that detest the Boy Scouts of America for their stand on Youth Protection and Homosexuality.
Tomorrow is the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts! I was a Scout on the 50th Anniversary and have the privilege of being a Scouter on the 100th.
If you see a Scout at Church today, please congratulate him or her and thank him or her for service to God and Country.
My son is going to church this morning in his uniform. Tiger Cubs!
I love the BSA, just did the Pinewood Derby last weekend, and the best thing is that in the BSA there are no awards for self-esteem. You win or lose or earn your badges. Like America should be.
This very month, my son completed the last of all 20 of the activities for his Arrow of Light. Further, we (wife and I) only had to “push” one activity, the Aquanaught and that was just getting him to his swim lessons when he didn’t feel like going. The rest he did with his den and at the direction of his Den leader.
... To say the least, I am very proud of him.
Our very own BSOTUS
It captures the idea of the 12 th point of the Scout Law.
I remember the 50th Anniversary. I was a Scout First Class with several merit badges.
100 Years of Boy Scouts of America. Eagle Scout. Thanks so much for the post. praise a boy scout. integrity something that is failing with the current O administration. no need to develop a national service organization of Obama Youth - indoctrinated to be socialist thugs, whom are brain dead. Notice O has no praise for the BSA.
God bless the Scouts. I’ll stand with them.
“You win or lose or earn your badges. Like America should be.”
This is a key issue between us and the Democrats, isn’t it? They’re all mass this and mass that; unions, eduction associations, mass illegal migration - everything is large numbers, never the individual human being.
The sponsor of my son’s troop was a church we did not attend but we always went with the troop on Scout Sunday as the church made it special to recognize the boys and the adult Scouters. As the father of an Eagle Scout, I always recommend Scouting as a great family-enhancement activity.
I was a Boyscout and it was a way to keep kids out of trouble and learn many different thing.
I was a Cub when the Scouts turned 50.
Pack 48, Yokohama, Japan.
I was a charter member of troop 161 in Niwot Colorado. It had to be when the Scouts turned 50 but I don’t remember.
I was fortunate enough to be a scout some thirty years back, and my wife and I are leading our son and his friends through their first year as Tiger Cubs.
Life is good!
