And even if they don't have such contacts, you can dial the number
yourself. I had to look it up last time, but I believe it's an 800-
number (free call, for the non-Yanks) and you get a recording detailing
"the Hot-Spot du Jour.".--. so to speak, of course. State Dept is a tad
more dignified. <G>
Also, perhaps I misunderstood the intent of the original post, but few
have addressed what I thought was the question: IF something happens
(such as a skyjacking) will being in Uniform help or harm the Scouts.
If that is the question, I'd be in favor of mufti/civvies.
However, in the event of a skyjacking, survival is probably random chance
anyway. Just don't make eye contact.
