Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts salute during a Memorial Day ceremony on May 29 in Linden, Mich. On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts of America Board of Directors unanimously approved to welcome girls into its Cub Scout program.

The Boy Scouts of America will admit girls into the Cub Scouts starting next year and establish a new program for older girls based on the Boy Scout curriculum that enables them to aspire to the coveted Eagle Scout rank.
