First Meeting As An Official Boy Scout

Jonathan headed out the door this evening in full Boy Scout uniform. No more Webelo uniform or Lone Scout neckerchief. He's officially one of the troop now. I think he was pretty happy.

Author Michael Mair came to speak to the boys about the Mississenewa fuel ship that his father was on. He talked about Japan's secret weapon the Kaiten and how it was used in WWII to destroy the Mississenewa and damage one other ship. He talked to the boys about honoring Veterans and how to ask them about their time at war so that history wouldn't be lost. He has done all kinds of research, been interviewed on the History Channel and written a book. He did a great job of presenting. Very interesting.
