Scott recognized for heroism in Coast Guard
Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Bradley K. Scott, son of
Carolann and Barney G. Lee of Pecos, was recently recognized for heroism
at the annual Coast Guard Foundation awards ceremony while assigned to U.S.
Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet, Riviera Beach, Fla.
While serving as a crewmember, Scott and two fellow crewmembers were on
a routine training mission when they spotted an entangled and disoriented
diver in the water less than 50 yards from an oncoming cruise ship. They
quickly put their small boat between the diver and the cruise ship.
Scott then helped pull the diver into their boat and was told that another
diver was missing. They immediately searched the area and found the second
diver, saving two lives.
Scott is currently assigned to U.S. Coast Guard Human Resources Service
and Information Center, Topeka, Kan.
Scott joined the Coast Guard in September 1999.
