Bugler - a Real Leader
Of all the Leadership Positions in a troop that a scout can hold for Star, Life, and Eagle advancement, I suppose Bugler must be the one with the least amount of obvious leadership potential. A scout playing the role of bugler might just toot the bugle at a couple campouts and that's all. But, if a scoutmaster really wants scouts to demonstrate leadership as they advance in rank, bugler can include some meaningful responsibilities that give the scout opportunity to grow his leadership skills.
For example, the bugler supports the troop in these ways in our troop:
These responsibilities require a scout to be prepared and able to play a bugle so there may be a small number of scouts able to hold this position. When the bugler is in front of the troop, parents, and guests at troop gatherings, all eyes are on him and he leads everyone in the ceremony being conducted. Even though he may never say a word in his duties, his leadership comes forth in his attitude, uniforming, and music.
