About “Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood"
In one unforgettable summer, three young men commit themselves to one of the most demanding youth activities in the country—World Class drum and bugle corps: A veteran drum line member steps into a leadership role for the first time; a 15-year-old trumpet player from Texas becomes the youngest member of the entire corps; and a color guard member fights to finish his final season after receiving a life-changing diagnosis. All three young men march with the Madison Scouts from Madison, Wisconsin. The strong brotherhood of this all-male organization helps them through their struggles and celebrates their triumphs.
