Among his personal belongings was a box that he made while he was a Trail Builder. Now I didn't know what that was or what they did. Apparently before the 11year old scouts, (Which I am the scout master for now) and before the Blazer Scouts, (which was the program I was in) was the Trail builders. In my Grandfather's box was his log of things he had to do to receive the various patches. Some of them were quite funny like, bushing teeth and hanging up his hat. I was fun to see his writing and his mothers writing.
