We are a Scouting family. Our sons were impressed to see a tribute to the BSA amongst statues and memorials commemorating our history.

Since my son is an Eagle Scout, I wanted to visit this memorial. It was an interesting tribute located just blocks from the White House. If you're in the area, you should go see it!

After spending several years in various Scout leadership positions, I always enjoy seeing this monument. Unfortunately, this time of year, the pool is drained. The grounds around it are in need of attention, several bald spots on the lawn.
