The Scout Uniform has a long standing tradition and symbol of Scouting. It also has a certain effect on the behavior of those wearing it and the views they have on the world around them. I do believe in the uniform, and even still have my navy blue Cub Scout uniform. However, I do have two big problems with the BSA uniform.

Eagle Tips are repubished with permission of Mark Ray. You can find his website at to enough Eagle courts of honor, and you’ll eventually see someone skip his lines in the script or read someone else’s lines by mistake.
