Merit BadgeBoy Scouts started in 1908 in Britain and soon thereafter came to the US. One hundred years!

I fondly remember my Cub Scout and Boy Scout days and summers spent at Camp Kootaga, WV. I still have my Scout manuals and uniform and other Scouting items. I value highly those days and what I learned from my den mothers and scoutmasters.

    Great reminder, Alan, on the Scouts. They are a truly noble and honorable organization to be a part of. Perhaps the Boy Scouts have it right. Check out the Scout oath and the Scout promise: Scout Oath (or Promise) 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. Scout Law A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Here is a list of famous Scouts – the list includes such notable men as: Hank Aaron, Neil Armstrong, Stephen Breyer, John Kennedy, John Major, Merlin Olsen.
