Heroic Scouts Meet President Bush

Ad Feedback

A group of Boy Scouts who were at a camp hit by a deadly tornado last month got to meet President Bush Thursday.

A group of about 145 scouts, leaders and their families met the President at the White House and had photos taken with him.

The Scouts also plan to tour the U.S. Capitol and have dinner at a Scout camp in Virginia before returning to Omaha, Nebraska. The trip is being paid for with donations.

The Scouts from Nebraska and Iowa were attending a leadership camp at Little Sioux Scout Ranch in Iowa when a tornado struck on June 11. Four boys were killed and several others were injured.

The camp is located about 40 miles north of Omaha where the Mid-America Boy Scout Council is based.
