Boy Scouts Troop 22 at the Rifle Range, Part 3
SgtMaj Jim Poe
Troop 22 Boy Scouts continued making progress towards earning the Rifle Shooting merit badge. Under the expert tutelage of 1stSgt Foote, this highly motivated group of Boy Scouts are quickly improving their marksmanship skills and abilities. We wrapped-up the event with a closing safety brief outlining mistakes or minor violations as a reminder to the boys. In viewing 1stSgt Foote in action, they are exposed to a superb example of active leadership, something the boys will also take away from the event. In between shooting relays, some diligently pursued other merit badge work. An example of this is Scouter Nathan Logan (photo) working on the Citizenship in the Nation merit badge in the marksmanship facility office. THAT’s a great example of time management! Part-4 continues next Tuesday.
