Why Tomorrow has Scouts and Veterans Pumped

6735-05-012-077Scouts marvel at the stories of veterans on a regular basis. At troop meetings and for Eagle Scout projects, young men are regaled with the stories of heroes who have sacrificed to protect the country. Now, Scouts are sharing their world with veterans.

Tomorrow veterans will pour into the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve for a Veterans’ Appreciation Day of Scout-style adventure.

West Virginia area Scouts will be on site to assist and participate alongside veterans in Summit staples, like zip lining. But this is no ordinary zip line. It’s equipped to accommodate veterans who use wheelchairs.

Scouts and veterans will also team up for relays and obstacle courses. The day will round out with a concert featuring country artist Aaron Tippin.
