Not to be obnoxious, but this is a kind of stupid question - of course you'd
wear your uniform...if anyone would hide it because he's not with the Scouts
at the exact moment, they should probably question their involvement. I've
got no problem wearing the uniform wherever I have to go, and occasionally I
get stopped and asked about Scouts, or someone will say, "I was a Scout."
with comments or whatever. Also, at school functions while I was Cubmaster
(I'm a brand new Scoutmaster) I would wear the pack's official T-shirt - this
was partially because our old principal didn't believe in Scouting (BOO!!
HISS!!) and didn't support the pack in any way, resulting in a kind of uphill
battle with everyone. It's advertising :)
