    Who got a boy scout medal of heroism..

    When I was 11, I had just come back from boy scout camp, and I used my lifesaving techniques to rescue a drowning child and give him cpr/m2m resuscitation.

          you'd have made the Colbert Report.

          But I'm guessing saving a life was its own reward.

            Well the truth was, the local BSA Chapter sent me and these 5 other guys on this like Heros Cavalcade Tour around the Washington D.C. area, and I was really a shy guy, and everywhere we went we got standing ovations from these crowds of boy scouts, and I really hated the attention, I thought I had done what anyone else woulda done, but even now 12 years after the fact, people still are like wow...you did that??

              at the right time and live to tell the tale.  Sorry telling the tale was uncomfortable, but doing the right thing is always to be honored.
