Hope this will help you.
"The Scout Behind the Man" by John Wayne
A Scout is:
Trustworthy - The badge of honesty. Having it lets you look any man in the
eye. Lacking it, he won't look back. Keep it at the top of your list.
Loyal - The very word of life itself, for without loyalty we have no love of
person or country.
Helpful - Part sharing, part caring. By helping each other, we can help
ourselves, not to mentiion mankind. Be always full of help - the dying
man's last word.
Friendly - Brotherhood is part of that word. You can take it in a lot of
directions, and do - but make sure to start with brotherhood.
Courteous - Allow each person his hyman dignity, which means a lot more than
saying, "Yes, ma'am" and "Thank you sir." It reflects anattitude that later
in life you wish you honored more....earlier in life. Save yourself that
problem. Do it now.
Kind - This one word would stop wars and erase hatreds. But it's like your
bicycle. It's no good unless you get out and use it.
Obedient - Start at home, practice it on your family, enlarge it to your
friends, share it with humanity.
Cheerful - Anyone can out on a happy face when the going is good. The
secret is to wear it as a mask for your problems. It might surprise you you
how many others do the same.
Thrifty - Means a lot more than putting pennies away, and it's the opposite
of cheap. Common sense covers it just about as well as anything.
Brave - You don't have to fight to be brave. Millions of good, fine, decent
folks show more bravery than heavyweight champs just by getting out of bed
every morning, going out to do a good day's work, and living the best life
they know how against a lot of odds. Brave - keep the word handy every day
of your life.
Clean - Soap and water help a lot on the outside. But it's the inside that
counts, and don't ever forget it.
Reverent - Believe in anything you want to believe in, but keep God at the
top of it. With Him, life can be a beautiful experience. Without Him,
you're just bidding time.
