    Hey! What happened to the Sea Scouts featured in the April 2015 issue?!!? I can’t find that comic now. Why did it get replaced? Not too friendly courteous or kind to do that to sea scouts.

  4. Lets hear it for the scouts

  5. I can not believe how the scouts did that. I am very proud of them

  6. My brother just ran into a tree on a sled and me and my friend helped him back to my house so we could warm him up and see if he was okay. Unfortunately i’m not applying to be on the magazine.
