Scouts is such a great organization and I'm happy they have been in the Missourian news twice recently. Hopefully the stories will instigate some new enrollment among boys and girls. 'Tis true, the organization does not tend to attract the popular kids, those with lots of other activities in which to participate.

But, the things scouts learn as boys/girls and teenagers sure come into their own with great power once adulthood arrives.

GREAT power and ideals....the very strategies proven successful in this world.

Many years ago the Boy Scout magazine had an article about a troop that held ALL their weekly meetings outdoors. I recall that the troop location was somewhere in the East but definitely not in the South or Southwest, where winter weather might be warmer.

For each meeting they built a fire (summer and winter) and held their ceremonies around it. The article had photos.

I still remember the title for the magazine article : The Toughest Guys We Know.

Recently there have been attempts to cripple Scouting and its influence. In 1933 one of the first youth organizations banned in Germany was Boy Scouts.

I guess being an Eagle Scout is a bit like being a United States Marine: you never stop being one.
