My 2010 Heroes

I was watching the shining light concert from the BSA National Jamboree at Fort A.P Hill, and I was thinking about some of the people that should be heroes or at least friends of the BSA.

Cheers to:

  1. United States Soldiers (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard)-these servicemen and women do incredible things to serve out country and do so without complaint. They do things that we would never do or probably never be asked to do.
  2. Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs host)-an Eagle scout and proudly endorses the BSA. If you don't believe me, check out his web site
  3. Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. -both took the time to visit with scouts and scouters at the National Jamboree.
  4. Ted Nugent- sent video to the Jamboree stating that he loves people that are always prepared. Who wouldn't add him to the good list?
  5. Kid Rock-assisted Fla. scouts with replacing camping equipment while on route to camp when equipment and trailer were stolen.
  6. President Gerald Ford- Eagle scout and proponent of the boy scout movement.
  7. Jerry Tilton- a local scouter in Green Bay who celebrated his 75th yr. of continuous service in the scouting program.
  8. Brady Poppinga -Eagle Scout and Green Bay Packer. Brady shows that he still lives the oath and law today in the way that he plays on and off the field.
Geers to (actually it isn't scout-like to geer but it rhymed with cheer) but the loser in this category):
  1.  President Barack Obama- invited to speak at the National Jamboree and sent video taped message instead.  Yes, I know he is the President and he is very busy, however; the Jamboree was practically in the White House back yard and if he could take time out to be on the "View"...
