Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of America visit the Kentucky Air Guard Base in Louisville on Dec 21.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 29, 2010) — Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts from across Louisville visited the Kentucky Air Guard Base Dec. 21.

“For 100 years, the Boy Scouts has created a strong foundation of leadership, service and community for millions of America’s youth,” said Maj. George Imorde, executive officer for the 123rd Airlift Wing. “It’s no surprise that many Boy Scout alumni  are a part of the Kentucky Air Guard’s 123d Airlift Wing here in Louisville.”

The Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts visited various units at the Air Guard base, talked with the Airmen and received demonstrations of the equipment regularly used at the base.

“The Cub Scouts wanted to learn more about the Air National Guard and what they do,” said John Frolehlich, Cub Scout grandparent. “They wanted to see the planes more than anything.”
