A WORD ABOUT SCOUTMASTERS
 Troop 99 in the 50s and early 60s was very lucky to have a string of outstanding scoutmasters, like
Mel, Whitey, and John Rhea.Many were Army draftees serving their two years in the military.Since
they were only on active duty for two years, you might think that and often served as Scoutmaster
for only a year or less.But nothing could be further from the truth -- most served for several months
as Assistant Scoutmaster, then moved smoothly into Scoutmaster's job.  Most were in their
mid-twenties and not long out of scouting themselves.  Some had already served as Scoutmaster
before entering the army.  Two, Whitey LeBlanc and Bill Bond went on to become professional
Scouters.
Later leaders, such as Arthur Holliday, were experienced NCOs and officers and served longer and  
made great contributions as well.    
Even though they might serve for only a year or five, that was still a lot of time in the life of a boy
who moved from post to post every couple of years. They gave a lot of time and energy to the
scouts, and made   the scouting experience outstanding for the scouts.   We hope that their long
hours with us was an enjoyable and memorable time for them too.
