Cub Scout Uniform

Whenever you see a person in a uniform, you get a quick sense of who they are and what they do. The members of a sports team wear their uniforms to say “I belong to this group.” Police officers and firefighters wear their uniforms to say “I provide a service to my community.” Even superheroes wear uniforms to say “I’m one of the good guys, and I stand for what’s right.”

Just like all of these people, Scouts also wear a uniform, and for the very same reasons. As a Cub Scout, you belong to a special group of people, you give service to your community, and you have made a promise to do your best to be one of the “good guys.” Wearing your uniform is a way of saying these things to everyone who sees you.
