Cub Scout Hero
If you read Boys' Life every month like I do, you've seen a lot of Scouts in Action stories. Today, a Minnesota Cub Scout gets a medal for saving his little brother last year. Pretty cool!

In the summer of 2006, Jonah H., 10, saved his brother Micah, 3, from drowning in a family friendís swimming pool. Micah jumped into the pool without a PFD and was unable to swim. Jonah called for help, swam to his brother and held his head above water until help arrived.

Jonah will be honored with a medal for his heroism tonight at the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting in North St. Paul. Jonah is a member of Pack 49 in Northern Star Council and lives in Maplewood.

In 2006, the Boy Scouts of America awarded 92 medals, spread across the 300 Boy Scout Councils in the country.
