EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I have selected two personal goals in 2011 to raise awareness for a worthy program that deserves our support.
Two personal goals for 2011:
- Complete the Marathon Du Medoc in France on 9/10/2011
- Complete the New York City Marathon on 11/6/2011
The program you can help me support is the Medal of Honor, Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice program. The program is a teaching resource designed by teachers to provide students with opportunities to explore the important concepts of:
While drawn from the personal accounts of our living Medal of Honor recipients, this collection of lesson plans does not glorify or glamorize war.

Student Reviews of the program:
"The most important thing I learned from working with the Medal of Honor materials was courage and that I should stand up for what I believe in. If you stand up for what you believe in, it will take you a whole lot further than if you follow the crowd and sometimes following the crowd can lead to something negative or bad."
"I learned how much we take the freedoms we have for granted."
"Act like everyone is watching, even if no one is."
Teacher Review of the program:
Mary Jane Koenig:
Teachers are always looking for ways to stimulate student learning. These lessons that focus on the Medal of Honor provide a way for students to make connections between history, personal values, and their own lives.
