What is missing from TFA is that after seeing Ms. Bennet get shot in front of him, he ushered the group of evacuees he was leading towards a different escape route and then returned to where he knew the shooter to be in order to evacuate her and stop her profuse bleeding on the roof.  He then, with the assistance of an intrepid civilian employee, littered the ground around building 197 with yellow stickies with a message of their plight, all the while expecting the shooter to follow the trail of blood to the roof.

So yeah.  Farking hero.

Outstanding!

Read this the other day, and was proud to see the Boy Scouts in the news for something non-divisive. He sounds like a great dude.

I got recognized for my actions once. Luckily, my lawyer got the beastiality charges dropped.

I was in the cub scouts as a young kid, all we did was build model cars and other arts and crafts for solid year. Was bored out of my mind, never went back.

Was never in Scouts, but I salute this hero anyway. Long and happy life, sir.

I will proudly salute this Man. Nice work!

Great work Chip. We always knew we could count on you.

In the Eagle Court ceremony, it said that a one Scout out of a hundred will use his learned skills to save a life...

Military skills to evacuate.

Scout skills to prolong the life.

You are a credit to both organizations, Sir.

His family was great in Land of the Lost.

I'll be impressed when he disavows Scouting for its ban on gay Scoutmasters and atheists.

The person who wrote that article is the one who should be shot...piss poor writing if you ask me. Even after reading the entire article I wasn't exactly sure what had happened, how it occurred or what exactly he had done to earn the praise that I'm sure he deserves.

Captain Zawislak and another employee saw the blast before racing to Bennett and carrying her to the rooftop of Building 197.
"I had nothing else other than paper and pencil, so i took the sleeve and packed the sleeves into her wounds," describes Zawislak.


"Blast"? - you mean gunshot? and thanks for giving us the totally unnecessary building number.
"I had nothing else other than paper and pencil, so i took the sleeve and packed the sleeves into her wounds,"
And this entire sentence above is about as poorly written a sentence as I have ever seen in professional print.
I hope the writer isn't getting paid for this kind of shoddy work.

So, Boy Scout training takes precedent over military training when a firefight breaks out...got it!

What kind of monster gives Boy Scouts away to people?

Well he was in the Navy. Nobody in the Navy except the seals has be in a fire fight since 1944.

Also fark the Intolerance Scouts.


Where do you think corpsmen for the Marines come from?

That's terrible. A Webelo is the traditional gift.

Too squirmy and impudent.

Able to read article at last! After doing so, added 1 more Votie For.  Eagle Scout gets extra points.
Was a Girl Sprout for as long as could be, to end of HS. Tried to volunteer to be GS leader during spouse's Ntl Svc in W Germany lifetime ago, but was refused as "unsuitable".  Either too long out of GS (5 yrs) or because spouse not an Ossifer, Merely Enlisted.

Good thing he wasn't gay.

Seriously, though, Kudos to Captain Zawislak, though as a veteran, it would have been nice for a little bit of credit to go toward his military training. Handling pressure in a critical situation is kind of the exact thing military personnel are trained and expected to do.

While Sailors might not engage in firefights (Corpsmen aside, since they are a different breed - and the corpsmen I knew as a Marine preferred to wear their "Greens" over their "Crackerjacks"), they trained to deal with catastrophic and horrific situations onboard a ship, which includes casualties.

Blast as in shotgun blast within 10 feet.  197 because, well, that's where it farking happened.  Yes, shiatty writing, but that's what the video was for.

He did get some of the same training in the Navy, but the scouts were giving him the award.  It's proper to acknowledge the organization's contribution in return.

"The first aid, acting under pressure, taking care of folks -- the leadership stuff is all taught in scouting."

That's good, but they add that anti-gay stuff and fark it all up.
