If you work with Boy Scouts, it will not surprise you to know that NASA has a strong connection with scouting. You'll see evidence of that link at the Boy Scouts of America's 2005 National Scout Jamboree, taking place July 25-Aug. 2. More than 40,000 scouts and leaders are expected to occupy more than 17,000 tents and 3,500 patrol kitchens at Fort A.P. Hill, just outside of Fredricksburg, Va. That's not counting the family members and general public -- numbering in the tens of thousands -- who will also visit the 10-day event.


NASA's presence will be seen at the Jamboree where NASA astronauts, scientists, project managers and engineers will serve as staff. You may catch a glimpse of the specially designed NASA/Scouting patch and post cards.

See the patch and read the full article here.
