Patriot "Good Scout" Award Honoree
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, will be honored at a pre-dinner VIP Reception with the Patriot "Good Scout” Award for his dedication to public service, commitment to civic endeavors and exceptional support of youth in Scouting.
Scouting Salutes the Military will recognize and honor one active duty enlisted service member from each branch of the U.S. military - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Service Chiefs and Senior Enlisted Advisors for each Service branch nominated candidates who are enlisted (E4-E6) service members, have Scouting in their background and have displayed exceptional meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding service, heroic deeds and/or valorous actions. The event also helps to raise critical funds for the local youth-serving programs of National Capital Area Council.
