Presented by Cory Etchberger, Regional Curriculum Trainer – MOH Character Development Program
Sponsored by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation


Many of our students are visual and kinetic learners; others find it hard to relate to the qualities of excellence our Medal of Honor Recipients embody. In this webinar, the presenter explored two lessons that will engage these students more easily using this free curriculum.

Webinar viewers will:

  • Explore artifacts from the Vietnam War & learn how to use artifacts in the classroom
  • Focus on the “ordinariness” of Medal of Honor Recipients
  • Engage in new ways to use the Character Development Program (CDP) in the classroom
  • Learn more about the Character Development Program at Freedoms Foundation

This recorded webinar also introduced the the brand-new full-day Medal of Honor CDP training at Freedoms Foundation’s Medal of Honor Foundation Legacy Seminar in Valley Forge, PA. This 5-day residency seminar delves into military history and the compelling stories of Medal of Honor Recipients within the context of the war they fought; also included are a full-day visit with a Medal of Honor Recipient, panel discussions with military veterans, and historic tours of Philadelphia.

Join the Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
