What Manner of Men?

"It's not the award. It's not the patch, it's not the badge. It's action. And when you find Scouts who do a thing, it doesn't much matter what their medal says, or doesn't say. It's their mettle - not their medals." (at 19:21)
--Mike Rowe, speaking at the National Annual Meeting

it gets really good at about 7:15

Case in Point:
NJ Scouts Intimidate Would-be Thief in Key West, Recover Stolen Wallet and iPhone.

All they did was follow the assailant on their bikes and keep their distance, which made him nervous and confused. He just couldn't shake these good-deed-doers.

"The guy was denying it and saying he didn't steal anything and the cop says, 'Well, I've got 17 Boy Scouts here who are willing to swear an oath and tell a judge they saw you. Who do you think the judge will believe?'"

True to form, though, the Scouts said the best part of the trip was playing volleyball with some Houston girls.

"Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be?" (3 Nephi 27:27)
