Lets try a different twist what is the best story you can tell about
something that happened or was said to you due to wearing a scout Uniform?
I'll throw in a Bridges Of Madison County Mid-Iowa CSP for the winner.
My best is one night returning from a SMF training in full uniform
including "smokey hat". I came upon a stalled car. I approached the people in
the dark. The gentleman responded to my question of "do you need some help"
by turning around and slowly shining a flashlight at me. He looked at me
sheepishly to which I replied that as a Boy Scout it was my "job" to help
those in need. I took them to the nearest town about 15 miles and we had a
nice conversation about why Scouting has survived. There son is only 4 but I
bet when Cub age comes around that "stranger" they met may influence their
