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 Beikirch, a 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.
