SOMERVILLE, TN (WMC-TV) - Residents in his hometown call him the "Man of Steel." But despite his lengthy resume, including time in the Army and at the Smithsonian, Somerville native Fay Steele hasn't been able to complete one task.
Steele's friends say he claims there is really nothing special about his life or accomplishments, but they disagree.
"His resume is something I couldn't start to tell you if I were doing this for a one hour show," said his friend, Bob Osburn.
Steele was the first person to run from the Atlantic to the Pacific along the Panama Canal - a route he's now run five times.
Steele served as a cameraman in the Army and was awarded the Bronze Star. In fact, during his Army tenure, he saved an entire Indonesian village.
"He killed a man eating tiger in Indonesia," Osburn said. "Killed a raging bull in that area as well."
But there's one thing Fay Steele doesn't have: his Eagle Scout badge. Even though he completed all the necessary Eagle Scout requirements back in 1933, he never received the badge.
"But because of the timing delay between the time he completed them and his 18th birthday, the troop didn't get his charter renewed," Osburn said.
Now, Steele's friends are joining together to try and get him his badge. But Osburn says Boy Scout officials have told him they don't have the necessary documents to satisfy Steele's Eagle Scout requirements.
Osburn helped publish Steele's book several years ago. He hopes someone can help him find an article Steele remembers from a 1933 Commercial Appeal.
"That stated he was the first Eagle Scout in Fayette County - in the picture and article, or at least the picture," Osburn said.
Osburn hopes that some day soon, he'll be able to surprise Steele with the news that he's now an Eagle Scout.
