Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. We all know the words of the Scout Law but nine Scouts from Austin Texas decided to go out and find the 12 points in action in their community. They are committed to “Believe it. Live it.”

You can view all 12 episodes of the Scout Law documentary, “Believe It. Live It.” on www.scouttube.org. The series is kicked off with an introduction from Vaughn Brock, who helped to finance this project as part of a capital campaign for the Capitol Area Council. Vaughn is an Assistant Scoutmaster and has four sons in Scouting. Here is a quick breakdown of each episode for you:
