Jimmy, I assume from your question and the fact that you are a Tenderfoot
that you are asking what Merit Badge to start your Scouting history off with.
Sometimes, things of this nature depent upon the opportunities available to
you. For example, if you were in summer camp, very likely there would be
lots of merit badges available to choose from, however during the school
year it may be a problem to find merit badge counselors for some badges at
the times that you could meet with them. You mention First Aid and Medicine,
I would thing that it would be wise to have completed the First Aid merit
badge before starting the one on Medicine. If you have a counselor for First
Aid, I don't think you could go very far wrong starting with that. Other
wise, I think perhaps that Reading or Family Life might be good choices.
