The book says "serve actively in one or more of the positions of
responsibility", this to me means more than just hold the position, also, a
scout that just "holds" the position and does not meet or do his best to try
to meet the minimum requirements, which are very minimum, is not showing
scout spirit, and as scoutmaster i have to sign off the requirement for
showing scout spirit in his everyday life.
