Local Scouts Visit Air Force Academy
As reported by ROBERT SMITH
While returning from an expedition from the National Scout Ranch at Philmont, New Mexico, Tecumseh Council Scouts traveled north to Colorado Springs, Col., for an overnight stop at Fort Carson. Monday afternoon the eight Scouts and two advisors visited the United State Air Force Academy.
The tour covered major points of interest such as the Fieldhouse Chapel, and Visitor Information Center. Cadets were observed in drill as well as off duty.
The crew continued home Tuesday, spending the night in eastern Missouri. Wednesday the two-car caravan stopped at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati to visit John Uible, one of our number unable to attend the trek since he was stricken with typhoid fever.
The expedition returned to New Vienna Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 2, at 4:30.
