Although you strongly endorse full uniforming, you wrote:
"This is something that cannot be legislated or dictated..." and "we should not
MAKE Scouts (wear their uniform)....".
Why not? If we are, as you say, a "UNIFORMED organization" why should we be shy
about insisting on complete uniforms? Since uniforming is just one of the eight
methods of Scouting (BSA), why shouldn't we have a uniforming standard similar
to the advancement standard that says that councils, districts, and units may
not add or delete requirements? I just don't see the difference and, from the
statistics you quote, our standards are obviously dropping and need a boost.
