Activist: Activated to help USA find its moral footing after a BOY SCOUT wrote the legal justification for torture for the Bush Administration. Scouting values mean something: it's time we burnished what we stand for.
What BPSA Scout Group do you belong to (if any)?
69th Ranger Scouts in Idaho Falls.
Any previous Scouting background?
Eagle Scout. 17 years nearly continuous service as a scoutmaster, assistant, or den leader. I resigned after the Dale v. BSA 2000 SCOTUS case. You see: my Eagle scout identical twin is gay. As are two of my six sons. So you see...
Any specific skills or talents that you could help BPSA out with?
U.S. Army Airborne Ranger Military Intelligence Cavalry Scout Mustang, mountaineering, whitewater kayaking and canoeing, small boat sailing, cross-country cycling. What do you need?
