Afghan Boy Scout Troop 1

I just read an article about our troops helping about 60 Afghan boys form Afghan Boy Scout Troop #1.  That brought back thoughts of my days in scouting.  I was a cub scout, boy scout, and explorer scout.  As an aside, for a few years in the 1950s the Boy Scouts created a parallel award to Eagle Scout–explorers could earn the Explorer Silver Award, and I did.  Scouting was very big in my life as a boy and young man.  I’m delighted to see this program being made available to Afghan youth.  I’m sure the program will adapt to their culture; I’m equally sure it will be a real blessing for many boys over there.
