In the Scouting community, we honor, grieve and share the passing of a long-time scout leader in the same tradition of Lord Baden-Powell by using the trail symbol for "Gone Home”. This is a simple circle with a dot in the middle and was used as a trail sign in the early 1900s to show other hikers that you had reached the end of the trail. Scouting uses this same symbol to show respect to our fellow Scouters and Arrowman who have passed away. Baden-Powell’s tombstone uses this simple symbol. For he who serves his fellows, is of all his fellows, greatest E. Urner Goodman, founder Order of the Arrow.
