When will YOU need to rely on YOUR scout skills?

How many of us know someone who has qualified for BSA’s Heroism Award? Check out this story of a friend of mine who will be nominated for his meritorious action. Talk about being at the right place at the right time to save someone’s life!


Jason’s a great guy! I have many fond memories of hiking and backpacking with him and our troop while exploring Seattle’s Cascade Mountains. Having served with Jason in a previous scouting capacity, I know his scout skills played a significant role in being prepared, knowing what to do and most importantly, not giving up! You just never know where you will be or when you will need the skills you learn in scouts. The story told in this video is one of those situations that demonstrates the importance of living our scout motto!
