lets hear it from naraht of APO USA...
The hand sign of APO Phils is the Scout Sign.
An APO USA member told me that the "scout sign" to them means silence.
The crowd went wild after APO Phils NP Mel Adriano delivered his speech at Hotel Sheraton, Boston, MA (APO USA 2008 Convention). Then he waved in the position of the "scout sign" suddenly the crowd went silent. hehehe.
naraht enlighten us.
APO USA and APO Phils have different constitutions or as we call it "By Laws".
Same principles. But different in culture.
For example, the Catholic Church, same beliefs anywhere in the world BUT they don't do "penitensya" in Rome, yet its a Catholic tradition by Filipinos.
Another one, in the APO USA they call everybody "Brothers", even the female members. Sa Pinas may "sis"
Ganun talaga pag totoong INTERNATIONAL ang fraternity
