2009-2010 Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide
Cub Scouts salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes can be ordinary kids who do something out of the ordinary. Do you read Boys' Life? Every issue features Scout heroes. Invite your hometown heroes to a den or pack meeting. Your den can become "silent heroes" by performing service for others without seeking any recognition. Visit a veterans' hospital, fire station, or police station and give a "Cub Scout salute" for their heroism.

HOW DOES “SCOUT SALUTE” RELATE TO THIS POINT OF THE SCOUT LAW?
A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation. Cub Scouts will show their loyalty during this meeting by participating in several activities such as honoring the American flag, creating a pack banner, and hearing about loyalty from a guest speaker or demonstrating loyalty to a team through a pack game.
Per our Founder, Lord Baden-Powell
Note – The original Scout Law published in 1908 had nine points. In 1910, the BSA added Brave, Clean, and Reverent. In 1911 B-P added Clean to his original list.
A SCOUT IS LOYAL
Baden Powell said - A SCOUT IS LOYAL to the King, and to his officers, and to his country, and to his employers. He must stick to them through thick and thin against anyone who is their enemy, or who even talks badly of them.
