Cub Scout Cookie Good Turn

Posted on 28 December 2009 by Dan

The Register-Guard has a write in letter that made me proud to be associated with the Scouting program and proud to be a Soldier.  The letter is from a Soldier, who while eating out, was treated to a cookie by a Cub Scout.  Not only did the Cub Scout make a Soldier’s day, the Soldier made the Cub Scout’s day as well.

 “In Cub Scouts, I am supposed to do a good turn daily for somebody,” he said. “And I wanted you to have this cookie as a way to show you how much I appreciate what you do for me and my family and my country.”

 Wow! All of these powerful words coming from a little boy made me choke up a little bit. He then asked me if I knew who the Cub Scouts were. Little did he know that he was talking to an Eagle Scout. I then proceeded to tell him about my Eagle Scout award and all of the great things he has to look forward to in his Scouting career. He was so excited that he couldn’t stop telling me about the things he had done recently and how he aspired to earn the title and rank of Eagle Scout someday.
