• “It would be difficult for any political party or any government to state its purposes . . . in better terms than . . . the Scout Oath — ‘To do my duty by my God and country.’ One of my great heroes of American history is Robert E. Lee, and he said . . . ‘We cannot do more than our duty. We would not wish to do less’ . . . Was there ever a time . . . when we needed to be more . . . morally straight? This Government, represented in its Legislature and its Executive departments and its Judiciary, has but one great purpose in its relationships with all other nations: to be morally straight.” ~President Dwight Eisenhower, remarks to the 44th National Council of the Boy Scouts of America (May 29, 1954)
