The Commodore Perry Scouts was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Los Angeles, California. They were sponsored by the Commodore Perry American Legion Post 525 and the Koyasan Buddhist Temple.|
Associated with the Los Angeles Boy Scout Troop 379, the Scouts boasted 164 Eagle Scouts among their ranks in 1935. George Takei, Mr. Sulu of "Star Trek" fame, was once a member of the Scouts.
Among the corps’ awards were the state American Legion Championships in 1955, 1956, 1962, and 1963.
The corps’ colors were green, black, and white.

About 1970-71, the kids in corps said they were not first or second generation. So they voted to changed the name to "Third Generation". [Submitted by Rex Hall 12-2016]
