For nearly a century, Scouting has helped millions of boys grow into responsible men and good
citizens. The events of September 11 have only reinforced my belief that there has never been
a time in our history when the contributions Scouting makes to the strength and resilience of
our national character are more important than they are today.
Yet, there has never been a time when Scouting has been under greater attack than it is today.
If you agree with me that protecting and promoting institutions such as the Boy Scouts is
essential to our nation's future, I hope you will join us in defending Scouting. The first
step in helping is to sign up in the box below to receive our free monthly e-newsletter and
occasional action alerts.
I look forward to joining with you to defend Scouting!
