God Bless the BSAOn Feb 5, 2013 3 Comments
Thank you for your strong support for the Boy Scouts of America to encourage the organization to keep its policy in tact so that our young men will be in a safer environment. I delivered the petitions to the Boy Scout Headquarters, and they have been delivered to the Board members. Many are still coming in, and I will send the remainder by morning.
Whatever happens in the coming days, months and years for Scouting, let us hope that this nation will continue to produce young men such as this one. Seven minutes worth your time, the story of an Eagle Scout and POW:
The Boy Scout Oath
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
The Boy Scout Law
A Scout is:
The Boy Scout Motto
The Boy Scout Slogan
Do a good turn daily!
The Outdoor Code
As an American, I will do my best to –
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
I raised four boys who were each involved in scouting from Wolf Scout to Eagle. All but one got his Eagle Scout Award. That one deserved it and had done everything but his Eagle Project. Some records had been lost and unretrievable amid some moves, but he’s a great young man.
I’m proud of my sons who have lived by these values. If everyone would follow these standards, the world would be a better place.
