Scoutmaster Musings

A Hero
Boy Scout Hero So, what do you do when someone runs their car into yours while you're driving your mom around?

Well, if you're Justin Jackson of Troop 797 in Florida, you follow the Scout Oath and "help other people at all times" and in the process earn the BSA's highest lifesaving award - the Honor Medal with Crossed Palms.
Congratulations, Justin!


In 2009, there were 16 Honor Medals with Crossed Palms awarded and just over 230 since it was created in 1924.

Congratulation, Justin. Being a law officer it makes me feel good that there are young men like you in your communities willing to help others. Keep up with the scouting program and set your goals high and complete them. By all means look after your community like just have helped that person who was in a wreck. We are pround of you and BSA is proud also.
