Day to Remember

On 03.25.12 04:19 AM posted by James Carafano


Some never stop giving back.

March 25 is Congressional Medal of Honor Day. Perhaps most remarkable and often unremarked is that what truly marks the character of the living Medal of Honor receipients is how they continue to serve beyond the battlefield. Much of that work is performed through the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation.

In particular, they work to educate the nation’s youth on character–selfless service, courage, and citizenship. Through the foundation, the recipients tell their stories. Teachers and students can also find material to bring the lessons of the best of the best of us into the classroom.

While it is worth setting aside a day to remember the extrordinary service and sacrifice symbolized by the Medal of Honor, it is even more important teach that legacy to every day to the next generation.
