Military and the Boy Scouts

I found this nice letter to the editor where the author is arguing that the “Boy Scouts reflect society, which is not secular.” He does make some good points. I’d encourage you to read the whole piece since the piece I am going to quote doesn’t represent the letter very well.

The author makes the best argument for the military to have a relationship with the Boy Scouts.

The military has a vested interest in courting the Boy Scouts–future service members. There are probably more Boy and Girl Scouts serving on active duty in the U.S. armed forces in Iraq than card-carrying ACLU members.

I know some Scouts and Leaders may not like that argument but it is the truth. Young men involved with the Scouting program like the adventure, have the patriotism, and have started to develop the skills to become great service members.
