A Scout is loyal; this means that he is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation. Loyalty starts in the home. You show through your actions that your family can rely on you to do what needs to be done.
The success of your Scout troop and patrol depends upon your loyalty and that of other Scouts as you support your leaders by doing your share of the work. We can express our loyalty to the United States by respecting the flag and government, and by participating in the democratic process. We can give real meaning to our loyalty by helping improve our community, state, and nation.
The scouting program instills this value into each Scout, supporting the same values that are taught in a good home. By so doing, a Scout becomes a valuable asset to their community and employer.
