You can find the Oath of Leadership in one of several places:
* in the older Patrol Leaders' Handbooks
* in the older Scoutmaster Handbooks
* within the materials provided to you during Wood Badge (I know, you haven't
been there YET...but I'm sure that you can "use your resources" *heheheheee*)
* from the archives of Scouts-L (we talked about this last in the winter of
I'll look around and see what I can find on this end....but I'm sure that
the last line
says "....for the betterment of my (Patrol and) Troop and for the World

handbooks....if you don't mind looking, it's either in the 1972 or 1976

more time, in the older Scoutmasters' Handbooks on that same shelf. See...I

(oops, you can move your hands from your eyes now!)
Hope that helps!
