Operation Patriot Games is a Lincoln Heritage Council sponsored camporee held every 5 years at the Fort Knox military base. Fort Knox is the home of armored operations for the U.S. Army. The base has a major impact on many communities in the Lincoln Heritage Council service area. The relationship between the military and scouting has always been strong, but what else would one expect from a movement founded by a retired Army General and which lives by the motto, Be Prepared ?
several thousand scouts who camped in one of the base's tank training
fields were awed by demonstrations of ARMY armor in action and thrilled
to have the opportunity to see tanks and other armored vehicles "up
close and personal."
