Scouting--October 1998

About our cover:

A Scout in uniform is a symbol of Scouting's values and shows the community he is proud to be part of the Boy Scouts of America. Scouter/writer Cathy Steg's article "It's a Great Fit" looks at why and how every youth and adult member can--and should--wear the complete uniform. Illustration by Bill Basso.
