A Scout’s Pledge to Honor God & Country

Duty to God

The Scout Oath begins with duty to God and the Scout Law ends with reverence. A Scout is Reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.
 

Duty to Country

The Boy Scouts are synonymous with American values and patriotism. A Scout has a duty to be a good citizen, obey the law, work to make a stronger nation, and defend it and its principals.
 
A Scout is helpful. A Scout cares about other people and willingly volunteers to help others without expecting payment or reward.
 
In the Scout Oath, a Scout promises “to help other people at all times”. The Scout motto asks one to “Be Prepared”. The Scout slogan reminds one to “Do a good turn daily”. These three ideals work together: you promise to help, you can help because you have learned how, and you do help because you care about people. Scouts want the best for everyone, and act to make that happen.
