BSA -- Boy Scouting - Famous Scouts

Since 1910, these principles have been taught in an atmosphere of
recreation and fun which allows young people to develop self confidence,
leadership and moral character. More and more men, trained as Scouts,
are taking their places in today's world as responsible adult leaders.
Men who earned badges as Scouts, sit on the Supreme Court of the United
States. Others hold important offices in our government, business and
industry. Most of the members of the present U.S. Congress were Scouts.
Of the 214 pilots and scientists selected as astronauts since 1959, more
than 125 were Scouts or have been active in Scouting, as well as most of
the astronauts who have walked on the moon. The new Suns head coach,
