The 1951 7th World Jamboree in Bad Ischl, Austria, that I was lucky to be a part of forever changed my outlook and life aspirations. My community in Shawnee, Oklahoma, helped me raise the money to attend. i will never forget the wonderful experiences I had on the ship ride over and once in Europe.
My Eagle Scout son attended a World Jamboree in Calgary, Canada, and Eagle Scout grandson and his sister attended the World Jamboree in Japan.
Scouts do a lot of good for a lot of people and show them how to achieve their goals. I know that Scouting had a deep and lasting impact on my life.
