To the Editor:
Many years ago, when I was a Scoutmaster of a troop, I could not get any help. So I asked if I could have some willing Den mothers from the Cub Scout pack to help with the Boy Scout troop.
I was told that Boy Scouts was for men and boys only.
Well, after a few years, we all know how that turned out. With the way so many in America feel about equality, I think we should just have Scouting — boys and girls together learning the same skills for the most part.
Yes, there should be a few different badges or skills for each gender, but overall, these programs are extremely good for the younger generation ... and the older as well.
One organization — it will eventually come to this anyway — just takes time.
