Three (3) scouts from my troop about 2 years ago received the
Medal of Merit for the saving of a life.
The older scouts (ostensibly Ventures, but not officially) were
on a hike in northern NJ with several leaders. One of the leaders,
who was a father of one of the boys, collapsed on the trail - mild
heart attack. One scout, his son, stayed with the leader and 2 went
to get help. That is after they performed correct procedures for shock,
heat, etc. and made the leader comfortable.
The leader was evac'ed via helicopter.
Since that time, I was honored to present two of these young men with
their Eagle rank.
