It’s great to see an Air Force SERE Specialist passing his fieldcraft knowledge on to Scouts.

    Every year USAF PJ’s holds a 2 week orientation course for Civil Air Patrol Cadets. There’s also an advanced course. It’s pretty tough even though its just for teens.

    Outstanding ! It is always great to read how those serving on the tip of the spear are passing on their field craft knowledge and experience to the next generation. I graduated from SERE school in 2001, it is some of the best training around. Thank you for posting this article.

      Jim I was thinking the same thing. Guy should have tried to go Army Rangers..

      I am also an Adult Volunteer with he BSA. And using my Survival training, and extended courses and experience. I have been teaching Wilderness Survival yearly here. The Scouts always have a great time. and it’s great to see them learn something new.

      Over here in Europe we often have military come down and teach MB Courses. First Aid course is the best.

      The Scout Executive for the Far East Council, Karen Meier, is a great Scouter. She came from our Council TAC, and has given many years of service to our Council. She’s doing great things like this in FEC..
