Art, Scholarship, Music, Coin Collecting, Collections, Computers, Model
Design, Law, Drafting.. etc etc....
With a selection from this group, and there are others, A scout could
achieve the rank of Eagle without ever having taken Pioneering,
Orienteering, Wilderness Survivial, Fish and Wildlife... or any of the
other badges that makes a scout different from any average High School
For my money you can take the three Citizenship Badges and lump them into
one... Safety? can you say Emerengcy Prep....
It seems to me that aside for the 20 nights of camping.... A successful
Scout can not be differentiated from almost any other moderately involved
youth in today's society.
I thought Scouting was to introduce boys to those things he would not
encoutrer in his everyday life....not give him credit for them....

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another;
but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.
The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena;
they are crucified alone. A.H.
