Boy Scouting in WW2

Recommended Posts

On this Pearl Harbor Day, I wanted to share with everyone two interesting articles on boys scouts in WW2.


The first is a Boys Life article from 1991 on boy scouts at Pearl Harbor. It is interesting the level of responsibility that the scouts were allowed back then. Sadly, I don't think anything like that would be allowed today.


The second is a Scouting Magazine article from 1999 on Boy Scouting in the Japanese Internment Camps. I am always humbled by the patriotism shown by those Japanese-American citizens even after they were betrayed by the nation they loved.
