Medal of Honor Character Development Program: New Lessons for Veterans Day


Veterans Day is November 11! If you are looking for a way to incorporate this day into your classroom, here are two new secondary lessons for you to share with your students:

Honor in the Face of Conflict focuses specifically on Vietnam War Veterans and incorporates the Living History video of U.S. Army Sergeant Gary Beikircha Vietnam War Medal of Honor Recipient. Key takeaways from this lesson include the importance of honoring Veterans and the challenges Veterans face when they return home from war.  

What Makes a Veteran? focuses largely on Veterans and the sacrifices they have made for our country. This lesson includes a video featuring Staff Sgt. David Bellavia, a War on Terrorism Medal of Honor Recipient, speaking about his service in the United States Army and the core values service members embody.
