Prayer for Fallen Scouts:

Almighty Father, as we grieve the loss of these leaders, help us to remember their involvement with Scouting.  Show us how they lived the Scout oath and law.  We ask that you comfort us as we will miss their friendship and fellowship.

What does "Gone Home" mean.

The use of "Gone Home" in Scouting refers to the trail sign meaning "all is well, I am safe, and have gone home."  It was first used at Baden Powell's gravesite in Kenya upon his passing.
