Explorer Scout Goes above and beyond the Call of Duty

For those of you who do not know what a Explorer Scout is it is a nontraditional career exploration program under a group of programs that the BSA refers to as Learning for Life Programs. A Explorer Scout is attached to a Post that is sponsored by some community organization in pretty much every career field imaginable. The most common posts are in fire departments or police departments but their are many other businesses that also sponsor posts.

This story is a news story that comes from Valley Springs California and is about a 16 year old explorer scout who while on a ride along went above and beyond his normal call of duty by rescuing the deputy he was riding with from almost certain death.
