I’m an Eagle Scout, and I’ve continued to take part in Scouting as an adult.
When friends went to Africa for a year long mission trip, Mrs. Hoge and I took over as leaders of their Girl Scout troop.
When the Jewish Community Center in Nashville wanted to start a Boy Scout troop, I served as their Scoutmaster for a year to help them get going. (No, I’m not Jewish.)
Here in Maryland, I’ve served as a Troop Committee Chairman, a Cubmaster, a Unit Commissioner, an Assistant District Commissioner, a Venture Crew Advisor, and a Merit Badge Counselor. I’ve helped organize local participation in the Jamboree on the Air, an international Scouting event via amateur radio.
