I noticed you because...

My wife and I were in Washington DC this last weekend, and toured the Capital building. There was a Scout troop taking the tour as well. I only know that because they were wearing uniforms - matching t-shirts AND pants - and that's what I noticed. I saw that several senior citizens appreciatively took notice as well. Without uniforms, I wouldn't have given them a second look.

The uniform, like rank advancement, is one of the methods that Scouting uses to accomplish the aims of fostering citizenship, building character and establishing good fitness habits. Remind your parents to encourage their sons to properly wear their uniform to all Scouting events. It gets noticed!
