    It’s so invigorating to hear the good exploits of the the young men in the Scout Program. Keep up the great work.

  22. cool, kids like matt and jake are what all boy scouts should be

  23. Awesome…………John and Jake, you should be very proud of each other, as I am of you both !!! You John, for training the scouts so well, and you Jake, for putting into action what you were trained to do. Charles and Matt, to you both, thank God you didn’t lose your cool and remambered all you learned also, because surely that too helped save your lives. Kudos to the whole troop !!!!!!! gram n gramps

  26. Wow incredible! Thats cool. But i hope im never in that situation

  27. Matt was a life saver.

  28. matt is awesome, he is my new boy scout idol

  29. Even if someone makes a rescue and is not a scout, do you still put them in Scouts In Action? Oh and one other thing did you get the peoples permission to put them in S.I.A?
