Can you say road trip? Eighteen scouts and nine adult leaders. We have firm reservations and can’t add any more persons. We have two large vans and a SUV.
During the first part of winter break week we’re going to go on a whirlwind military road trip. First stop will be National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola FL, We’ll then bounce over to Alabama and spend the night on a World War II battleship! At the USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile AL. Then we will visit National Infantry Museum in Columbus GA. That’s 2 days, 3 states, 2 branches of military service! The Troop has done a similar trip visiting some of these places before and they are all outstanding!
