Troop Quotations

I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn't have a zip code. It's too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn't farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.
Rick Perry

Show me a poorly uniformed troop and I'll show you a poorly uniformed leader.
Robert Baden-Powell

Ted Stevens
