Key Note Speech at the OCC, Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner, April 23,2014


Greeting Scouts,

All nations throughout the history of the world, periodically are confronted with nation-threatening times thereby triggering a call to their youths, especially males to "man" the frontlines of its defense.


Such calls are usually for military conflicts, whereby these young men bear uniform and arms to wage war upon the enemies of their nation's interest.


Example: The United States of wages several wars from its first, that is the 1776 Revolution; the 1812 British-USA; Mexican-American; Civil War, i.e., the Southern Confederate Rebellion, or the Presidential, Executive Order To End Chattel Slavery War; those notorious and infamous Indian Wars from 1776 and peaking in the 1880’s; Spanish-American War; WWI; WWII; Korean; Vietnam; Granada; Panama; Afghanistan; Iraq wars; etc.


 During WWI (April 6,1917-November 11,1918) the new, fledgling Boys Scouts of America significantly assisted our nation’s effor by helping to sraising war bonds, and later for WWII (December 7,1941-late April/early May 1945).  Also, during WWII, many in then more advanced youth movement of 31 years (1910-1941) went into US military service ("...to help other people at all times...") to defeat the Hitler Youth turned- soldiers of the Nazi German forces.


From those threatening years until the present, the US military has a history of young men who had previously served GOD and Country via the Boys Scouts of America demonstrating that the two American entities shared a mutually satisfying legacy.


Outstanding Military Service

The American military cannot survive the challenges of the 21st century without the preparatory support of the Boy Scouts of America.


Millions of our bravest heroes in uniform – thousands who have given their lives in every war since World War I – wore their first uniform as a Boy Scout.


Nearly every person who actively participated in Scouting as a youth testify that before they wore the uniform of the US military uniform, they first donned that of the Boys Scouts of America, which in many ways was their inspiration to arms in defense of our country’s ideals., obviously served as inspiration to  inspiration


While most attention is placed upon the rank of Eagle, most of the young military men who have experienced Scouting ranged(s) from Scout, Tenderfoot, 2nd and 1st Classes and Life, along with those of the Explorers and Sea Scouts.


Completing That Unfinished "Cause"

As there have been numerous military conflicts throughout US history, only one threatened our nation’s very existence, which is commonly known as the Civil War.


Unfortunately, the aftermath of what occurred in our country 150 years ago is once again threatening this “We the People” Republic of the United States.


In light of the present crisis of our country and of the world, perhaps GOD, to whom we are dedicated to do our "...duty to GOD and Country…” has arranged for you to be born and place as a Scout in the BSA at this particular time for such a cause as this being presented to you.


Indeed, even as Scouts are to strive to do a “good turns daily”, your services are now being summoned to help salvage the United States by the forces of your Troops, and the resources of the Orange County Council and that of the National, et al.


There are three instruments by which you can take actions now, they are:

  1. Homelessness - The United States is a “nation of immigrants”, i.e. homeless:

  • Note: “…send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed to me.” The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus, inscribed at the base of the Statue of Liberty.  Please see "The New Colossus"



     2. US Military Veterans -

        Defending the Cong. Deeded Veterens Home Land for homeless Veterans in Brentwood, California...

         ...which symbolizes all the unjust treatment being recieved by our Veterans and Troops.  No doubt of the

         thousands of homeless Veterans, many of them first served GOD and Country via the Boys Scouts.  


    3. Cricket as a civilization tool


    4.  MLK-BSA Project

  • This is the venture of making known to the USA and world that the Rev.-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. also served GOD and Country as a Boys Scout of America.



Perhaps, these national and world conditions were made for the oldest and largest youth movement in the world to truly assumes what may be the very duty to GOD and Country that is was created and developed for… “such a time as this”.


Therefore, together, we implement and deploy the ideals of our Boys Scout Law, Motto, Slogan and Oath to the crisis of our county and those of all the nations of Earth.
