YES-YES-YES-YES A full uniform is always appropriate at any scouting
event. I encourage my sons to wear their uniform with pride, whenever it
calls for it.
In fact I just had this discussion with my 15 y.o life almost Eagle
scout. At this age, some of his friends are feeling skittish about being
in public in uniform. I told him That when people see the scout uniform,
it represents certain things to them. Among them, Leadership, Knowledge,
Courage, Honor and Kindness. My, where do those values come from?
Please, encourage these values and pride in our organization and the
uniform it represents in all your boys whether your family, troop, pack
