There's been a lot of discussion about the thread of service. I just want to
point out that the purpose behind the requirements for service is not for the
boys to do their obligatory 1 or 6 hours, but to start them on a life-long
trail of service, even when not required or noticed. If we put too much
emphasis on the hours or when/where they serve, we'll be defeating the purpose
of teaching them to look for service and HOW to serve. Scouts should prepare
for a life of Cheerful Service (WWW), and these requirements should help them.
Just my personal thoughts...
