Linus Van Pelt: “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'”
Linus Van Pelt: That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
Please enjoy a safe and Merry Christmas!

On our way to the section we had selected for laying wreaths, we encountered an Air Force major and three members of the Civil Air Patrol who had been tasked with offloading an entire 18-wheeler stacked floor-to-ceiling, and wall-to-wall with cases of wreaths. He was profoundly grateful for our offer to assist.
The boys took turns working on the truck, as the rest either grabbed boxes of wreaths off the back, or broke down and stacked the empties on pallets, all while going out and laying wreaths on the graves.
They worked quietly and diligently throughout. When a colonel came by and complimented the major on the smooth and efficient operation, he replied that the credit belonged to the thirty scouts and leaders who offered to help and just started working. As they stood watching in admiration, the major told the colonel that he wished his lieutenants in training were as self-motivated as these scouts. The colonel suggested he tell them on Monday morning, then got in on helping to offload the truck.
The boys from both troops were terrific, and several assisted elderly vets in laying wreaths on the graves of fallen comrades. Words cannot express how proud we are of every one of you guys.

When we arrive at Pouch Camp we drop our packs eat lunch have some patrol competitions, some training, hang out, and then have a campfire.
