    Who Is Your Scouting Role Model?

    Our Troop had many adults who rotated as Scoutmasters and supported the committee. Judge Richard Freeborn, Doctor Mark Cooper, Gary Miller and Martha Miller, Greg Lindsey, Ferdous Kamfar and Mrs. Ditmars. The older scouts who ran the troop that I would attempt to emulate often were children of this great group of adults: Brian and Ben Cooper, Brian Miller, Jason Freeborn, Kerry Chapman. All doing their very best to live the Scout Oath and Law and be a great example for scouts and running the best program the they could. My twin Brother Rodney, who earned his Eagle at the same time I did. of course I couldn't let him be a better scout than I was.....Right ?
  2. TAC is the trans Atlantic Council. This is where I was affiliated in Germany, with American Boys. There is Also Scout Shops as well. This is where you can go and get supplies. http://tac-bsa.org/executive-board/tac-description/

    selecting a uniform hat for a new troop

    Mr. Mike, I wore a beret as a Scout as well, in a parade if my memory serves. Never really objected to it. Unit they decided to make me wear it in the Army. Hot summer days in Georgia with no brim to speak of, sweat always dripping in your face as there isn't really a sweatband..... Great for ceremonies. Not great for anything else.

    selecting a uniform hat for a new troop

    Summer camp this year I saw a ton of different hats. This one is a Military style Garrison cap. The never functional Beret. This is our troop Black Baseball Style cap. When everyone wears the campaign hat it looks very sharp.

    I agree. The minute you make it about the Adults, the program is going to suffer. Thank you for what you do. I don't mind telling people, I'm still active so when I'm in uniform its hard to hide it. But when I do get the Unstoppable "thank you for your service" I always try and say "thank you for your support" but it usually comes out awkward. Maybe after I retire Ill get it right.

    Good morning to you. As a current member of the Army and an active Scouter trying to maneuver his children through the great program that is Scouts, I would prefer to leave the achievements to the scouts. As an Eagle Scout I get to where my square knot, and there is already a Military Affinity for NESA Military members. I don't know. I just prefer the recognition go to the scouts. Great thought though. Id love to hear more input from the field. Rob

    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    Its very sad that the Girl Scouts, instead of seeing a challenge to better their program to attract the types of girls that want to join the BSA they just sue.... So disappointing.

    Hello... Mobile, AL

    Welcome! Great to see new additions. Any Previous experience in Scouts ?

    What would you do?

    Being and setting the example is a hard road to walk. Hopefully we can drag the parents along, while providing a great example for our Scouts to follow. Sometimes it works and other times........

    What would you do?

    Sir, I hope you are joking. I would never deposit a scout in an Uber, Lyft or taxi and consider it good.

    Questions about scouting

    Sir, If I can offer advice. Cubs is a circus... a wild ride with kids bursting with enthusiasm. If you cant make a den meeting one of the other parents can and should step up and handle things. When you get back they should be able to tell you what was completed or not. What level are you helping with ? I have done Lions which was a crazy adventure with some very excited kindergartners. Boy Scouts needs to be Scout lead and as an Adult leader why are you tracking what requirements are completed and which ones are not? It would help the troop and the Scouts, if the parents have questions about advancement to ask the scouts in question. If that fails then they can ask the scoutmaster to pass the info on to the PLC. and Welcome to the Forums. Rob
