Scouts Then and Now, Chapter 7

Ian from Virginia

Welcome to Scouts Then and Now, a Bryan on Scouting blog series. The premise is simple. I share two photos of the same Scout or Venturer: once in his or her early Scouting years (Cub Scout, younger Boy Scout, younger Venturer) and again in his or her later Scouting years (Life Scout, Eagle Scout, older Venturer).

  1. Love the Then and Now photos. Scouting had and still has a role in my son’s life. After earning his Eagle scout rank and attending college, he’s become a scout leader to continue teaching the values he learn as a Boy Scout.

  2. Excellent article and feature.
