2010 National Scout Jamboree: Kent State

Dylan Nelson of Fond du Lac, Wis., touches a bullet hole in a metal sculpture on the campus of Kent State University at the site of the 1970 shootings by National Guardsmen during an overnight stop at the school in Kent, Ohio, Thursday, July 22, 2010. Nelson is one of about 200 Boy Scouts on their way to the 2010 National Scout Jamboree which celebrates 100 years of Scouting.

Bay-Lakes Scouts explore the spot made infamous by John Filo's iconic photograph of Mary Ann Vecchio kneeling over the lifeless body of Jeffrey Miller who was killed by a National Guardsman's bullet.
