Seascout-Net Mail Archive for August of 1999: Holy Mackerel!

Fellow Skippers, Mates, and Other Distinguished Salts:
I just opened the September issue of Scouting to see three Sea Scouters and
two Sea Scouts on page 44 above the caption "Strong Values, Strong Leaders."
When was the last time you saw two Sea Scout leaders wearing the same uniform?
When was the last time you saw two Sea Scouts from two different units
wearing the same uniform?
When was the last time our organization was shown and mentioned in
conjunction with the use of its proper name? (I know, it was a few years ago
and no one was in a uniform.)
A major coup! I'd like to compliment those portrayed on the proper
understated elegance of their work uniforms. No blizzard of patches, no
constellations of stars, no tangle of knots, just what is needed.
Not bad, not bad at all. And the message, we have strong values and strong
leaders and we exist!
