Liam Ballantyne Heads Into Eagle Scout Board of Review

Congratulations to Liam Ballantyne as he goes for his Eagle Scout Award. Since he is with the Sea Scout division of the Boy Scouts of America, he has on a sailing uniform.

Liam is headed to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in August.

In 1910, Lord Baden-Powell, founder of Boy Scouts, created Sea Scouts to serve as an extension of Scout training. Young men would develop personal character—pluck, patriotism, and intelligent discipline—through a sense of duty. By teaching boat management and seamanship, young men would also gain individual knowledge to help them become self-supporting. Sea Scouts performing coast guard duties, lifesaving and salvage at wrecks would also perform invaluable community service.

Baden-Powell’s belief that Sea Scouts would combine the best attributes of seamanship with training in character was shared by the Boy Scouts of America. Two years after the Boy Scouts of America was born, Sea Scouts was organized in the United States with the aid of the Secretary of the Navy in 1912.

The Sea Promise
As a Sea Scout I promise to do my best:

• To guard against water accidents
• To know the location and proper use of the lifesaving devices on every boat I board
• To be prepared to render aid to those in need
• To seek to preserve the motto of the sea: Women and Children First
