Aloha, That was a great tour of the USS Missouri. The highlight of the week in fact. Looking across Pearl Harbor and what a wonderful site. Full of history. I hope you all enjoyed it. I mentioned my mother's first cousin, Robert Mansfield, who is a Concord native and he attended Concord High School (now Emerson Umbrella). He died during the war in Guam. He is buried in the National Cemetary called the 'punch bowl' in Hawaii.
My father quit high school and gave up half of his senior year and joined the Navy to serve in WWII. Not unlike this class of 2020, who doesn't have their graduation. Instead of graduation, he was shipped out to Pearl Harbor. So there are a lot of Concord connections. Maybe we should plan a trip and stay on the Missouri?
Don't forget to do the Lincoln/Troop 132 Scavenger hunt! Bring your family and friends and stay socially distant. Enter to win and no matter how many you did we will have a drawing.
This summer will be interesting and we will rise to the challenge. I can’t say enough words of praise to the entire Troop. I’m proud that you are working on scouting and weaving scouting and the Scout Oath and Scout Law into your daily life.
We are kicking off a food drive. Good work scouts.
