Go for it... It's public domain, and at least for now, a "free" country. My signature was written by a two time CMOH recipient, as well as one of the original "awake" Marines.

The Boy Scouts is a CIVILIAN group for children centered around EDUCATION, and now under the new administration they are being turned into a MILITARY unit.
The only reason why our nation's youth are being militarized is because they expect some mayor revolts from the people soon, and the brainwashed youths don't even know what they are being trained for, they are just happy to be able to now be part of a MILITARY FORCE...
Following his 14th birthday in 1941, Ratzinger was enrolled in the Hitler Youth, as membership was required for all 14-year old German boys after December 1939, but was an unenthusiastic member and refused to attend meetings.
His father was a bitter enemy of Nazism, believing it conflicted with the Catholic faith, according to biographer John L. Allen, Jr. In 1941, one of Ratzinger's cousins, a 14-year-old boy with Down syndrome, was taken away by the Nazi regime to a care center and killed there in secrecy during the Aktion T4 euthanasia campaign of Nazi eugenics
In 1943 while still in seminary, he was drafted at age 16 into the German anti-aircraft corps. Ratzinger then trained in the German infantry, but a subsequent illness precluded him from the usual rigours of military duty.
As the Allied front drew closer to his post in 1945, he deserted back to his family's home in Traunstein after his unit had ceased to exist, just as American troops established their headquarters in the Ratzinger household.
As a German soldier, he was put in a POW camp, but was released a few months later at the end of the war in the summer of 1945. He reentered the seminary, along with his brother Georg, in November of that year.
