I dont want to work my way up, to any thing! I want to continue to work
with youth at the troop and post level. Like I said before I am in a
scouting "limbo" I cant do much youth stuff. and I have a long way to go
tyo compete with the adults, I also dont have the money to donate,nor am
I a president of a company. I stand up all the time for what I believe
and have been told that "It was none of my business" I dont think that
there is a place at National for the "people on the front lines". For
instance I think National has a problem, They spend way to much money
on themselves and on silly programs and not enough on Boy & Cub scouting.
(e.g. National flies all of the OA area chiefs to Texas once a year and
they stay at a real nice hotel. All they do is talk and give themsleves
awards) How do I stop it?
