Naval Academy Blue and Gold Officer Visits Boy Scout Troop 11 in Redlands

Mr. Riojas, Blue and Gold Officer speaking at Naval Academy opportunites

I have been the Senior Patrol Leader for the last year of Redlands Troop 11, and my term is coming to the end soon.

Tonight was my last “regular” meeting. The only meetings left for the year is the court of honor next week and Christmas party in December.

I will miss our meeting on Nov 20th, because I will be at the Air Force Academy.

The one thing I wanted to do for my last meeting was bring in my, Blue and Gold Officer, Mr. Riojas from the Naval Academy to talk about what a great opportunity that not only Naval Academy has but the other service academies. He spoke about the ROTC scholarship opportunities and even Officer Candidate School.

He talked about the scouting program and what a great leadership program we have and how much the service academies like the scouting program.

If even one scout takes that information and changes their life it will be a great thing!

Here a couple pictures from our meeting.
