My name is Zach Meyers, and I am a Boy Scout. I am a member of Troop Eight and of the Cobra Patrol. My fellow members are Dalton Schenk, the patrol leader, Benjamin Heckathorn, the assistant patrol leader, and Kenny Martin. My Scoutmaster is Greg Schultz.
In Scouting you have to memorize an Oath "On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty, to God and my country; and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times and to keep myself physically strong mentally awake and morally straight." Scouts must live that oath everyday. Scouting is more than just camping and hiking. It is about making boys into men.
The Scout Law, mentioned in the Scout oath goes, A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. Scoutmasters assure their Scouts that if they live by the Scout Oath and Law they will never be in prison.
