I love going to (especially schools) all types of organizations, of all ages and ethnicities, to speak about our history, Vietnam, the CMOH, my dad, and how important our Veterans, first responders and their families are, and should be, to us all. But
above all, we are ALL Americans and should all know/learn the meaning of a true hero. I'm not talking about someone with a mask, cape and special powers.
To me, heroes are the ones who protect OUR country and us every day, which includes ALL areas of
service people and ALL types of people and societies within, who protect/serve with their lives, leave their families and loved ones and safety of their homes to PROTECT US ALL. This (my dad) is what a true hero is to me and always has been my entire life,
even before my 19 year "young" dad received his Congressional Medal of Honor. Wow, only 19 years old!
I want to teach (and believe it's so very important to the history, people, future of our nation and our children) how very important love, respect,
honesty, family, friendship, peer support (not pressure), our country and history is and how ANYONE (no matter how young or old, rich or poor) can accomplish so very much just by living by these charicteristics and be a HERO TOO!
Should you be interested
in having me as a speaker for your school, church, company, organization, etc. or know someone who would, please feel free to contact me. I love teaching the Character Development Program developed by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and will leave
you and your school with professional teaching resources and curriculum you will be sure to enjoy along with your students!
