Medal of Honor recipients have demonstrated their patriotism and love of freedom through their heroic efforts during armed conflict.  The sacrifices these people have made to protect the freedoms this country enjoys is worthy of the highest commendation. 

They have risked their lives to promote American ideals and jeopardized their dreams so that we could remain free.  These soldiers are people we can all look up to as symbols of honor and respect and love of country 

Enjoy your experience as you learn about each of these individuals and the awards they have received.  Their deeds are an inspiration to children

The Army National Guard has launched a new recruiting effort to attract prior-service Soldiers. Dubbed "Active First," the program targets new recruits who want to serve on active-duty but are willing to return to the Guard to finish out the remainder of their initial military service obligation. Officials hope to recruit as many as 2,000 Soldiers into the program this year, and recruits can earn bonuses as high as $40,000 plus another $20,000 when they transition into the National Guard.

To find complete information on current cash enlistment incentives (signing bonuses) and reenlistment bonuses offered by each of the Armed Forces, visit the

Expanding Educational Opportunities

The Fund for Veterans’ Education was established to provide scholarships to veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001 and who are now enrolled in college or vocational-technical school.

We are committed to helping veterans close the gap between rising educational costs and GI benefits that have not kept pace.

We have a moral responsibility to provide educational opportunities to the young men and women who have selflessly served our country since the attacks of September 11, 2001.” - Jerome Kohlberg

Give an Hour' Seeks Volunteers

Week of March 17, 2008

 

Give an Hour was founded in September 2005 by Dr. Barbara V. Romberg, a psychologist in the Washington, D.C., area with the mission of developing national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society.

The organization is currently targeting U.S. servicemembers and families who are affected by the current military conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Give an Hour asks mental health professionals nationwide to give an hour of their time each week to provide free mental health services to military personnel and their families. For more information, visit the Give an Hour website.

Operation Never Forgotten

Week of March 17, 2008A troop-support group in a small southern Michigan town is working to raise public awareness and appreciation for troops and their families. "Operation Never Forgotten" bridges the gap between our military and civilian worlds by creating nonpartisan national awareness advertising for our troops, veterans and their families. 

 

  The organization has rolled out more than 500 billboards across America on highways and in airports from Times Square to Los Angeles. The billboards display an unmistakable military theme with phrases encouraging viewers to remember and support the military and their families and the sacrifices they make. For more information, visit the Operation Never Forgotten website.
