From the ACLJ:  

We asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to reverse a lower
court decision which declared unconstitutional a 1972 law enabling the Defense
Department to provide support to the Boy Scouts.  The ACLU claimed the law
violated the separation of church and state.  The ACLJ filed an amicus brief on
behalf of 90 members of Congress; in it, we asserted, ”The only possible
message that the military’s aid can be viewed as conveying is that patriotism,
self-reliance, physical fitness, and support of the military are positive
things.”  The court agreed with us and dismissed the ACLU’s lawsuit.
