Star Board of Review

    On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, and mentally awake, and morally straight.
    A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, corteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
    Be prepared.
    Do a good turn daily.
    As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my outdoor manners, be careful with fire, be considerate in the outdoors and be conservation-minded.
