boy scouts

With beards like this, these boy scouts could operate in some pretty serious operations… black ops even:

Like Martin Luther King, I also dream of a day when operators can be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their ops.

All that’s missing is a more tactical outfit, some high speed low drag sunglasses, and a black rifle.

The pics are from the “Be One With The Wild” print ad campaign done for the Boy Scouts of America by Olgivy & Mather.

You can view some higher resolution pics in all their glory over at Ads Of The World.

If I could only grow a beard that respectable…

The training, which leaders say is not intended to be applied outside the simulated Explorer setting, can involve chasing down illegal border crossers as well as more dangerous situations that include facing down terrorists and taking out “active shooters,” like those who bring gunfire and death to college campuses. In a simulation here of a raid on a marijuana field, several Explorers were instructed on how to quiet an obstreperous lookout.

I didn’t realize that programs like this were offered in Boy Scouts.  I thought it was simply more mainstream activities such as camping and survival techniques etc.
