How many of you know that purple patch you wear on your uniform represents that Boy Scouts of America is a member of the World Organization Scouting Movement (WOSM). WOSM is the organization all Scouting programs world wide are part of, thus why its refereed to as the world brotherhood of Scouting. For those of you who are curious Girl Scouts and Guides are under the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
Did you know you can meet other Scouts, Scouters, Girl scouts, and Guides from around the world, from the safety of your own home. All you have to do is go to InsaneScouter, click on virtual activities, then ScoutLink chat. Depending on when you login will depend who meet and where they are from. Regardless of who is there feel free to talk to them and ask about Scouting where they are, etc. It can be grand fun and quit interesting to learn how Scouting differs around the world.
