Today is Boy Scout Day.
The Boy Scouts of America were incorporated in 1910 and even since have been teaching boys and young men many skills including leadership and citizenship. My husband is an Eagle Scout- the highest award in Scouting. So is my cousin Andrew, 181 astronauts, Gerald Ford, many high-ranking military and political leaders, Mike Rowe (the Dirty Jobs guy) , Steven Spielberg, and many others. My nephew is in Scouts now and he’s had some amazing experiences and learned a ton as a result of his membership.
If you have a young boy in your family I encourage you to check out Scouting. I’ve seen first hand the positive role it has had in the lives of men I care about and you will too.
