Scouting After the War

After returning to Los Angeles, Bill joined the Koyasan Boy Scout troop when it reformed in 1946. After his time in the Army, Bill returned to scouting again, this time as a troop leader.

Here, Bill and his son Marc's troop from Evergreen Church pose for a photo at Camp Bighorn, Lake Arrowhead, in 1971.
