Military Bases Warned on Sponsoring Scouts

From Times Wire Reports

The Pentagon has agreed to warn military bases worldwide that they should not directly sponsor Boy Scout troops, partially resolving claims that the government has improperly supported a group that requires members to believe in God.

The settlement, announced Monday, came in a 1999 lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, which said American military units have sponsored hundreds of Boy Scout troops.
