April 27, 2013 is a special day. It is Tulsa Medal of Honor Day.  It honors the courage and sacrifice of our men and women in the armed services, and especially those whose actions were “above and beyond the call of duty.”  This is a great opportunity for your unit to learn about our citizenship, our veterans, and about Tulsa’s own Albert E. Schwab.

Do you have Scouts interested in learning about our military history?  This event focuses on the service and sacrifice of our military veterans.  There will be a military history tent, two Medals of Honor on display, military vehicles and equipment they can experiences, and…storytellers.  Veterans from World War II, Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan will be sharing stories specifically for Scouts.  If you would like to sign up your unit to have a storyteller scheduled for a specific time slot, between 10:30am and 1:00pm, please reply to Bill Fournet below.

We have a great opportunity to provide our scouts an experience of service, self-sacrifice, and valor. Eagle District is supporting Tulsa’s Annual Medal of Honor Day this April. This inspiring event honors our military heroes for their “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.”
