Scores of people celebrated 30 years of Vietnamese American scouting in Sacramento this weekend, reports KCRA.

Among the celebrants, three generations of scouts from the same family. Their first generation were Boy Scouts in Vietnam. Despite the ban, the tradition continued when Vietnamese Americans arrived in America.
