What knot to do

       Sgt. Johny L. Briscoe, a Colorado National Guardsman who returned from Iraq in August after a 12-month tour, works with his older son James, 11, on a knot-tying exercise during a meeting of the Westside’s Boy Scout Troop 3 at Trinity United Methodist Church. A Blackhawk helicopter mechanic, Briscoe recently presented an American flag to Troop 3 that had flown in combat over Iraq inside a Blackhawk. Briscoe and his wife Shannon also have a 7-year-old son, Kenny.
