A Scout is Obedient - These are some of the things that people consider good luck charms. Some folks think these things keep them safe.
One of the great attributes of Scouting is that it teaches young men to work together to achieve a common goal. A Team can always do more by working together than they can do by working individually. Teamwork can bring out the best in all who are involved. An amazing example of this can be found in the story of the Apollo 13 mission to the moon.
