  • Only discovered years later

    Okay. Sometimes you learn "secrets" years later that should have been obvious and laugh because it's either so rediculous or you should have known it.

    Last night my son and I had a private going away dinner for him as he leaves for USMC boot camp tomorrow. One of his old patrol mates joined us. The scouts in his patrol bonded and are still good friends. They still get together at times.

    So I heard a few stories. One that should have been obvious was his patrol name, Wolverine. They were proud of it. During many late night capture the flag games I'd hear the cry "Wolverines !!!". Last night I learned the patrol name was chosen because a few weeks before crossing over into Boy Scouts, two of the scouts had a sleep over and watched Patrick Swayze in Red Dawn. In the movie, the school mascot was the Wolverine. The movie war cry was "Wolverines". Only too funny.
