WMC Hosts Merit Badge Clinic
On March 24, the War Memorial Center hosted its second Boy Scouts of America American Heritage merit badge clinic, under the guidance of scout leaders Jim Nelson and Mike Malloy. About 15 scouts from Milwaukee’s Three Harbors Council (Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties) and the Northeast Illinois Council attended the event.
Malloy, a Vietnam veteran and frequent WMC education program participant, joined fellow veterans George Banda, John Koeppen, Bob Pfeifer, Ruby Scheuing and Chris White, who were interviewed by the scouts about their service as part of their merit badge requirement. While the scouts worked, their parents were treated to a tour of the building and memorials.
The next BSA merit badge clinic is scheduled for Dec. 1, 2018.
