    SCU Gibson... "I was a scout a long time ago, I'm afraid the only thing I passed was my cooking test. But it did teach me in the few weeks that I was a scout the decent things in life. The Nazis, they have their German youth movement where they're taught the foulest things in life, and you are quite the opposite. You are taught resourcefulness, courage, devotion to duty, in other words, you are just being taught the things which will stand you in good stead in the Service. And so I say to you, good luck, and best wishes for the future."
