I am 18yrs old and have never had a problem wearing my CS or BSA uniform in
public. If you don't take pride in the Boy Scouts, then why should the
boys. The way I see it is that if you are a leader and you are embarrassed
to wear your uniform in public then you don't belong in scouting. I might
add that Scouts of all types especially Boy Scouts are greatly respected,
Something I REQUIRE from anybody I associate with. If you don't like what I
do I am not the one to talk to. Did you know that all astronauts used to be
required to be an Eagle Scout.
