UMaine cadet and friends save local teenager on Mount Katahdin | Maine Campus

Jimmy Strickler is a third-year student at the University of Maine in their Army ROTC program. While he was hiking on a mountain with some of his friends, they came across a severely dehydrated and hypothermic teenager. When he was unable to keep down any water or walk, Strickler and his friends carried the lost teen for almost four hours to get him down the mountain and to medical care. Strickler has stated that his training as part of the Black Bear Battalion helped him assess the situation and choose the best course of action. Lieutenant Colonel Steven Veves, the head of the program, commented that he was very impressed with their actions and consider them a “selfless service.”
