Camp Bullowa 1960

Film from visiting day at Bullowa Scout Camp in New York, 1960. It could be my camp, my Troop, me.

I still remember the entire Boy Scout oath. I don't remember the serial number of my gun in the army. I don't remember the number of my locker in school. But I remember that oath. --Tommy Lasorda

That brings back memories!

When I was trying to learn the scout oath, I was having a hard time. Dad put me in his bedroom and said he was going to close the door, and not to come out until I had it down. I walked around and around the room reciting the oath for maybe 15 - 20 minutes. And I had it. He knew to pull me away from distractions to get it done.

A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. It has been nearly 50 years, and it is still there. As is "Be Prepared". Or the way we used to get on the nerves of the senior patrol leader, "Beep Repaired!"

Unfortunately, they are over. You don't come back from surrender.

It played for me.

On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
