July 31, 2010 -- On a hot, humid day at the Eagle Scout Alumni Arena, National Scout Jamboree held on Ft. A. P. Hill, Va., an unusual event occurred. Petty Officer 1st Class Derrick Ray Hurt, also known as Eagle Scout Derrick Hurt, was re-enlisted by Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert C. Nolan II, commander, Joint Task Force-National Scout Jamboree.

“I am a Navy corpsman wearing a Marine uniform, re-enlisting on an Army fort by an Air Force general,” said Hurt, describing the event. “You will never be able to cover all those bases again.”

Nolan described Hurt as a Corpsman that always ran into harms way when the call came for medical help while deployed in Iraq; supporting the Marines and other forces.

Hurt is here supporting the JTF-NSJ as the team lead for Emergency Preparedness at the Jamboree's Merit Badge Midway.

 U.S. Navy Petty Officer Derrick R. Hurt, Joint Task Force-National Scout Jamboree team leader and emergency preparedness badge instructor, was re-enlisted by Air Force Brig. Gen Robert C. Nolan II, commander, JTF-NSJ on July 30. Hurt, an Eagle Scout, described his re-enlistment as a once-in-a-lifetime event, meshing his two passions, the military and the Boy Scouts. The JTF-NSJ's goal is to provide professional military support and a safe and secure environment for scouts and visitors during the event. The Department of Defense's presence and effort at the Jamboree emphasizes the commitment to the nation's youth.

“This is a great opportunity to mesh my two passions in life, Boy Scouts and the military,” said Hurt.

Hurt credits the scouts for giving him the foundation as a leader, and the knowledge to excel as a Navy corpsman.

After his re-enlistment, Hurt was presented with a complimentary lifetime membership to the Eagle Scout Alumni Association.
