Veterans Day - #3403 - VIDEO: Robert Hurt Honors America's Veterans (2) Honoring Veterans Day - Heritage Foundation


Robert Hurt Honors America's Veterans - Today, we come together as a nation to recognize and pay tribute to our veterans who have selflessly served our country with distinction and heroism. We honor the sacrifices of those brave men and women who have given so much to keep us safe both at home and abroad. And we are grateful to all of those who have fought for our country so valiantly over the generations to preserve our freedom and liberty. As we all work to address the challenges that currently face our nation, we must do so with their sacrifices in mind – committed in our efforts to preserving our American way of life for our children and grandchildren – those very freedoms that our veterans and our troops have fought to defend.  I am proud to represent so many veterans from Central and Southside Virginia, and I hope that you will join with me this Veterans Day in thanking all of those who have and continue to serve this great nation.


Honoring Veterans Day - Heritage Foundation -  Today, we at The Heritage Foundation are proud to honor Veterans Day by pausing to remember the men and women in uniform who serve this country. They are some of the finest this nation has to offer.  Among those who have served throughout the years, the recipients of the Medal of Honor (MOH) deserve our utmost respect and admiration. They wear this august award for those who did not come home. They never refer to themselves as “winners” but see themselves as caretakers of the Medal of Honor for all who also served in harm’s way in defense of freedom.  The Medal of Honor is the highest award given to an American military service member who has shown extreme courage and intrepidity during combat.  We at The Heritage Foundation would like to take the opportunity on this special day to introduce you to a foundation devoted exclusively to perpetuating the legacy of these heroes and their notion of service above self.  The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and its Educational Curriculum are an invaluable resource for Heritage and for our nation. Teaching lessons in character, the Foundation holds in its resources short video living biographies of over 100 recipients of the Medal of Honor. These testimonials provide the basis for a six-part curriculum that teaches students how to better understand and emulate the virtues of courage, integrity, sacrifice, commitment, citizenship and patriotism in their own lives.  Read more and link to Metal of Honor site.........
