I saw this yesterday at the ATC conference during a presentation on Wilderness Stewardship. The SAWS group is doing good work, and Jose Arroyo is a success story:

I think he probably will make a good officer in the Navy or Marines.

Bless him. I've worked with so many kids that, through no fault of their own, wind up in the system, and it beats them down. To step up like he has, he should do well at USNA.

Personally I hope he goes Marines when he completes the Academy.

Likely will with wilderness being such a part of him. I couldn't handle being on board ship for years at a time.

Very inspirational. I suspect he will excel at whatever he chooses.

Why do you think I take a group of kids hiking on the AT every year?

"Why do you think I take a group of kids hiking on the AT every year?"
Would this have anything to do with a Registered Sex Offender status?
I'm just sayin'.

It does remind me a of a tasteless joke.

A pedophile and a child are walking in the woods. The child looks at the pedophile and says "I'm scared". The pedophile replies "Your scared? I've got to walk back by my self".
