Celebrating 100 Years

 

For 100 years, the BSA has created a foundation of leadership, service, and community for millions of America's youth.  Our 100th Anniversary is a milestone bigger than a single day celebration.  So, we've launched a series of programs, spanning two years, and we’re inviting everyone in America to get involved.

Obama skips, McDonnell attends historic boy scout jamboree

 

President Obama may not be planning to speak at the 100th anniversary of the boy scouts' jamboree today in Virginia, but Gov. Bob McDonnell wouldn't miss it.

 

McDonnell was a boy scout. His two sons were boy scouts.  And his wife, Maureen, and all three of their daughters were girl scouts or brownies.

 

The jamboree began this week at Fort A.P. Hill in Bowling Green, less than an hour from Richmond.  Held at that location since 1981, it will the last time the event will be held in Virginia.

 

In 2006, McDonnell fought back against the ACLU, which tried to end the jamboree, arguing that the Defense Department's financial support of the event violates the separation of church and state.  He called the lawsuit an "attack by the left wing on religion in the public sphere."

 

The governor will speak to 45,000 scouts this morning, congratulating them for a century of service and emphasizing the importance of their work to their communities and country as a whole, his spokeswoman Stacey Johnson said.

 

Obama, out of town for a taping of the ABC show The View (the first president to do so) and Democratic fundraisers, will send a videotaped message instead.

 

Seven presidents, including Obama's three immediate predecessors, have made it to one Jamboree while in office.
