Honor, Respect, Devotion to Duty: LT Shannon Scaff

On Feb. 28, 2012, four Coast Guard members lost their lives in a helicopter crash that was felt by every one of the service’s approximate 42,000 men and women. Lt. Shannon Scaff, an instructor with the Coast Guard’s Maritime Law Enforcement Academy in Charleston, South Carolina, and long time friend of Lt. Cmdr. Dale Taylor, decided to invest his grief into something positive: a test of his mind, body and will.
