Scoutmaster Minute—A Scout is Loyal

February 28, 2010

A Scout is Loyal.  A Scout is loyal to those to whom loyalty is due.

When we think of being loyal, we think of standing by our country, and our state.  We are loyal to our church and our family.  We are loyal to our school.

When we join Boy Scouts, we pledge our loyalty to our Patrol and Troop.  In Cub Scouts, the Law of the Pack was that the Cub helps the Pack go and the Pack helps the Cub Scout grow.  In Boy Scouts we each help the Patrol and Troop, and the Patrol and Troop help us.

That’s the key with loyalty.  It’s not a one-way street.  Your Patrol and Troop are only as good as you make them.

You get out of Scouts what you put in.  You give loyalty to those to whom loyalty is due, and they will return loyalty to you.
