As reported by Joseph Nadal The Back Hawks Patrol got braggin rights on this one. Scoutmaster Di Trani confirmed that they carried the troop this time & set the bar for the other six patrols for next time.

When Patrol Leader Ben Lattanzio was asked about his secret for success, he responded, “I got this.” and “The patrol members who came worked hard as a team and followed my lead to get it done.”

On behalf of the T37 Scouts who earned these recognitions, we thank the Adult Leaders, Volunteers and Supporters who guided, advised, mentored and challenged these young men to do their best by manifesting their proven skills & abilities with confidence & leadership.
