NATIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR DAY – MARCH 25TH

The United States Congress has designated March 25th of each year as National Medal of Honor Day, a day dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients. (Public Law 101-564) Conceived in the State of Washington, this holiday should be one of our most revered. Unfortunately, all too many Americans are not even aware of its existence.

The date of March 25th was chosen to highlight this special day because it was on March 25, 1863, that the first Medals of Honor were presented to six members of Andrews’ Raiders, all soldiers from Ohio

Below are a few of the Medal of Honor recipient’s stories, as produced and recorded by Ken Rogge for Veterans Radio.

INSPIRING HOPE THROUGH TRANSFORMATION

Don Caballero

"God spoke to me, and He was very clear. He said, 'If you were to die today, where would you go?'"—Don

At one point in Don Caballero’s life, he seemed to be on the fast track to becoming a “career criminal.” After his parents divorced when he was in middle school, Don struggled with addiction, insecurities, and academic issues. First incarcerated at age 18, he spent years in and out of jails and recovery programs, homeless and running the streets. He was in custody in Fresno, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Oakland.

“There was a point in my life where I honestly didn’t think I was going to see the age of 21,” recalls Don, “and there were some days, honestly, where I wish that I didn’t, because it felt so bad.”

The police would arrest him, he’d be released, and then he’d commit more crimes.

American Minute with Bill Federer

I am one of those who believe there are some principles worth fighting for & worth dying for” -U.S. Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall

At the last minute, he set aside his prepared remarks and preach a prophetic message, “Go Down, Death.” 

Within an hour after he finished, news of Imperial Japan’s attack at Pearl Harbor spread across the nation. 

Peter Marshall stated: 

“I am one of those who believe that there are some principles worth fighting for and worth dying for if need be.”

Women of the Revolution

Most of us have heard of and remember Paul Revere, Joh Paul Jones and of course George Washington. All hero’s of the American Revolution, but how many women of that same conflict can you name?

Women of the Revolution

 Courageous women have always played a vital role in American history.

Addressing the Daughters of the American Revolution, April 19, 1926, President Calvin Coolidge stated:

"The importance of women in the working out the destiny of mankind ... As there were fathers in our Republic so there were mothers ...

By their abiding faith they inspired and encouraged the men; by their sacrifice they performed their part in the struggle out of which came our country …
