Doing Your Civic Duty

What does it mean to be a citizen? You are automatically a citizen of the country where you were born, but most would agree that being a good citizen takes more effort. People often talk about the rights they cherish as citizens, such as freedom of speech and the right to bear arms, but those rights are balanced by responsibilities, such as voting and paying taxes.

Every opportunity you have to provide service to your country, whether through the military, political office, or community projects, strengthens our nation. The more you learn about citizenship, the better you can do your duty to your country, as the Scout Oath requires.
