Presidents and Scouting


Usually, rising to the office of president requires hard work, dedication, and a singular focus on the goal at hand. The same can be said of becoming an Eagle Scout.The earliest presidents weren’t Scouts simply because scouting wasn’t founded until 1910. Not all presidents were Boy Scouts in their youth, and only one, Gerald Ford achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Here is what some of our nations Presidents have had to say about Scouting

1. Theodore Roosevelt

“More and more I have grown to believe in the Boy Scout movement. I regard it as one of the movements most full of promise for the future here in America.”

2. William Howard Taft

“I am very glad to give my sympathy and support to such a movement as this. Anything that directs the boy’s spirit in the right channel for usefulness and for the making of manly men should be encouraged.”

3. Woodrow Wilson

“The Boy Scouts have not only demonstrated their worth to the nation, but have also materially contributed to a deeper appreciation by the American people of the higher conception of patriotism and good citizenship.”

4. Warren G. Harding

“I am with the Scout movement heart and soul…I wish every boy in our America could have the advantage and the honor of being in the Boy Scout organization.”

5. Calvin Coolidge

“If every boy in the United States could be placed under the wholesome influences of the Scout program, and should live up to the Scout Oath and rules, we would hear fewer pessimistic words as to the future of our nation.”

6. Herbert Hoover

“In meeting the vital need that when the oncoming generation takes over our national affairs it shall be a generation bulwarked with character, the Boy Scout movement plays a most useful part.”

7. Franklin D. Roosevelt

“As one who has been interested in Scouting over many years, it has been most heartening to have so many evidences of the practical values of Scout training.”

8. Harry S. Truman

 “The Boy Scouts of America, since it was founded in 1910, has contributed greatly to the character training of our youth. What a greater nation this would be if the principles of Scouting could be woven more closely into our daily lives.”

9. Dwight D. Eisenhower

“The Boy Scout movement merits the unstinted support of every American who wants to make his country and his world a better place in which to live.”

10. John F. Kennedy

“In a very real sense, the principles learned and practiced as Boy Scouts add to the strength of America and her ideals.”

11. Lyndon B. Johnson

“Today, as we face the challenges of an increasingly complex and frequently disturbing world, America needs an alert, responsible, and energetic youth to provide her with a vital resource in a hopefully happier and fuller future for all.”

12. Richard Nixon

“I strongly believe that Scouting offers an exceptional opportunity to learn about good citizenship by being a good citizen, and I am glad to hear that we can count on you to carry on the very important work . . . in encouraging America’s boys to make themselves into the men our country needs.”

13. Gerald Ford

“One of the proudest moments of my life came in the court of honor when I was awarded the Eagle Scout badge. I still have that badge.”

14. James Carter

“It [Boy Scouts] is a constructive initiative on the part of young Americans to explore career interests, and to become better prepared for a more satisfying and rewarding future.”

15. Ronald Reagan

 “By sponsoring many useful physical, mental, and social activities designed to promote self-responsibility, the Scouts strengthen the cornerstone of individual freedom in our nation.”

16. George H.W. Bush

“The Boy Scouts of America has assumed a leadership role in confronting this problem [of drug abuse]. You are teaching self-protection strategies against drugs and other dangers.”

17. Bill Clinton

“For almost a century, the Boy Scouts of America have helped to make volunteer service an American ideal.”

18. George W. Bush

“Every day, Scouts are showing that the greatest strength of America lies in the hearts and souls of our citizens.”

19. Barack Obama

“Today, Scouts across the country continue in the tradition of collecting food for those in need, improving our neighborhoods, and reaching out to those less fortunate.”

20. Donald Trump

“When you volunteer for the Boy Scouts, you are not only shaping young lives; you are shaping the future of America. The United States has no better citizens than its Boy Scouts.”
