Make the uniform mean something to the Scouts makes all the difference.
On one occason we were traveling to Worlds of Fun we stopped at a park to
set up camp. We walked past a troop's campsite where there were'nt any
uniforms in sight. One of our youngest scouts commented that they must not be
very proud of their troop.
On another occasion we were stopped in Springfield by an older couple and
complemented on the great behavior of our Scouts. The SPL was with me when
this happened and he just beamed.
Fact is the boys do act differently when in uniform. They realize that
they are representing the Boy Scouts when they wear the uniform.
Uniforming is a one step at a time process. I liked the rewards mentioned
for patrols who are the winners of inspections. Are your adults uniformed
correctly? Have the boys inspect them sometime.
