Dear SR-430 Staffs,

Thank you for all the efforts & hard works you had put into this pass Wood Badge training. We know all of you have taken your own personal times from work & also away from your families, from the comfort of your own beds, from no mosquitoes, tics, flies, and other unknown creatures for the good of Scouting.

You may not think of the need to express our "Thank You". Many of you give & give without expect much return. Often our thanks are silent, but as we all know the "Thank You" return when we give what we recieved to the youth in Scout movement.

I like to take this opportunity to let you all know how much I treasure old friends I had, the new friends I made, the things I learn, the times I spend, and even endure all the mosquitoes & tics bytes I got at camp.

We may not have all the times we want to get to know each and everyone at camp, but you all have a reserved spot in a pocket of my heart that I will always treasure.

Love & Friendship in Scouting,

(Owl patrol)

P.S To all English speaking Leaders, sorry for the Vietnamese part at the begining, but I have to express in both language. :o)

Dear members of the "all-nighter" patrol (Beaver, Eagle, Fox, Owl and Bear):

I hope that everyone of you are doing well. It's been almost a week and would you believe that I still have not unpacked yet! Yes, it's been rough coming home to civilization. I made a 2 trips to the doctor for my "polka dotted ailments", was put on medication until yesterday. So, I'm finally up and coherent today.

Anyways, I did not get an opportunity to say thank you. It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to work with all of you. I've made some very good memories and friendships that will always be cherished. In such a short period of time, I feel that we have truly bonded as brothers and sisters in scouting. Having completed the course, I now fully understand "listening to learn", "communication", and "managing conflict". As a troop guide, it was very much a learning experience for me also. I know that our work does not end here, it is only a beginning. I know that the road ahead may be challenging as we motivate our patrol members to work on their tickets, but I know that with each other's support, we will be able to fly through as creatures in the night.

As we move forward with our own lives, the memories made yesterday will always be in our hearts, but the "scars" we have on our legs are evident reminders that somewhere out there, there is an "all-nighter" member that shares the same mark. Be not ashamed, but be proud that there are only "5 crazy ones" out there. Have a wonderful day.

Truly yours in Scouting,

Tran Kim Thoa
Honary Bobwhite, but forever a Fox

Thanks a lot everyone!

Than men chao quy Truong,


I am so lucky to have Lien huong as my other half! she already expressed whatever in my heart to you but I don't have the talent to write them down like that. Therefore I would like to ask Lien Huong the permission to deliver her Email to you as a part of my feeling to all of you.

Beside that, I was back home early Wenesday morning and back to work the same day to find down almost 100 phones' messages then work and work with jet lad and itching all over.

Lien Huong and I also went to visit few times to support the Basic Training course held this weekend for the new and pre- leaders of the Scout troops in Southern California.

Again and again, THANH YOU " Staffers" with all my heart and THANH YOU all My TUNG NGUYEN 4 Mates, you are so great, so fun and to make me deeply in love with all of you.

Than thuong chao va bat tay trai de hen dip khac.

Cao tram ngam,
Nguyen Cuu Lam
