Boy Scouts of America
Founded February 8th, 1910

The Scout Oath
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.

If you enjoy things from the “good old days”, be sure to look through some of these vintage issues of Boys’ Life, the official magazine of the Boy Scouts.
