On Saturday, Jan. 18, 46 members of Troop 370 stopped in at the Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum for an hour-long tour.  Many of the young men were keenly aware of America’s role in that war.

John Walsh was especially interested regarding the Asian theatre while others kept the tour guide inundated with all sorts of questions. The troop leaders also were fascinated with the exhibits, short films and artifacts on display. Both scouts and troop leaders were amazed to learn the stories and history behind the exhibits.

Margaritte Jackson, of Marietta, Ga. who also has a vacation home on Dog Island, directed the scouts to the museum. The Boy Scouts were here to camp on Dog Island over the weekend.
