    Just out of curiosity, how many scouts are on this forum and how many were scouts and are now in an ROTC unit or an academy? Also im wondering what other peoples opinions are on scouting 'from the outside'

    Scouting has been a big bearing in my life, but not in my troop. I got involved with the Order of the arrow, which is their national honor society. As of now I am serving in a position in my section and I must say I love it. Of course I will not say what section or my position since their are only 3 key positions it would be quite easy to narrow it down.

    I'm an Eagle and USAFA grad. I'd say the program is very valuable. There are not a lot of programs that offer outdoors skills, teach good citizenship, physical fitness, various sciences and skills, and practical leadership in one place. The leadership experience was very useful for me.
