Gerald Schilling, of New Jersey, is on the trading post security staff. He accompanied his son, Cory, to archery last week and both father and son had a great time until Cory realized he had lost his wallet. He was upset to lose all his money, but even more upset about losing the Totin’ Chip card that his dad had signed, his Boy Scout and school IDs, and a family photo. Both father and son checked the Lost and Found repeatedly and were losing hope of finding the lost wallet.
Three days later, upon returning to Subcamp 2, Cory had a wonderful surprise. His wallet was waiting for him and all of its contents were intact. Since Cory’s ID was in the wallet, Lost and Found was able to identify his subcamp and forward the property there.
This is not the only story about property and money being returned intact and it is a tribute to the Scouts at the jamboree. They live the law—A Scout is trustworthy.
