    • I have been an involved Cub Scout mom for 6 years, and my 11yo recently crossed over to Boy Scouts. I want him to go to the weeklong camp this summer (Ransburg in IN); I feel it's important to start scouting with an immersive experience. He is bucking it big time. Supposedly he doesn't want to go because I won't be there. Backstory: his father and I divorced when he was young, and while we're both involved, he prefers time with me. His dad is not involved in scouting. As a school teacher, I could get certified as a volunteer and go to camp--but helping him become independent is a major reason I want him in scouting. He does see a counselor for anxiety and emotional issues. BTW I am not a hover mom-- I am excited about him trying new things at camp--but he is freaking out. Thoughts? TIA
    • Yes indeed, red berets and the colorful rank and patrol patches started circa 72. The pants, shirts and shorts were simplified in design and made of lighter materials.  A couple washings and they were like pajamas. Then the Oscar D uniforms appeared in 80.  I think they were a moderate improvement over the 72 - 79 era.  Except Oscar introduced those abominable epaulets, a completely unnecessary contrivance for scout uniforms. 
    • At least we had a "uniform."  Now we have a brand of clothing with many "official" choices of material, style, colors and  and shades of color. 😐
    • So help me out here, did we not change to the red berets and multi colored rank patches in '72?     Second class was green, first class red, star was blue.  I forget the rest.
