On the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, the Blog would like to hail another hero, Dan Fitzhenry who has earned one of scouting's highest honours, the Silver Beaver.
Dan has been involved with the scouting movement for over 40 years. After 9/11, as a member of a special On-Call Federal “Immediate Go” Disaster Team for the United States Department of Health and Human Services, he helped provide medical assistance to 6,000 emergency workers at Ground Zero. He credits his scouting training for his level of preparedness
He has also provided similar assistance after the earthquake in Port Au Prince in Haiti, and hurricanes Ivan, Katrina, Gustav and Ike.
