Local boy scout troop relives history PDF Print E-mail
Local Boy Scout Troop 80 recently relived a part of history when they participated in the camping program aboard the World War II Aircraft Carrier YORKTOWN in the Charleston Harbor of South Carolina.
The troop became “shipmates” with other troops as they toured YORKTOWN, World War II Submarine CLAMAGORE, and the World War II Destroyer LAFFEY.
For the full effect of having lived aboard a famous man-of-war, morning and evening meals were prepared and served to the participants in the “Chief’s Mess” and they slept in the sailors’ berths aboard the YORKTOWN.
The trip was made possible in part by the support from the men’s and women’s auxiliaries of Charlestown VFW Post #1427 and a private sponsor.
Troop 80 meets every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the St. Michael Catholic Church preschool building.  Matt Marshall is the Scoutmaster. For more information on Boy Scout Troop 80, please contact Committee Chair Shelly Bartoch at 812-844-1631.
