As the nation reflects on the brave and heroic men and women whom we honor and celebrate on Veteran’s Day, you can enjoy some stories about America’s warriors in books and movies available at the Calvin T. Ryan Library. A simple search – ‘medal of honor’ – from the library home page provides the following, for example:
- Willbanks, James H. America’s Heroes Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War to Afghanistan. Santa Barbara, Calif: ABC-CLIO, 2011.
- Fox, Wesley L. Six Essential Elements of Leadership Marine Corps Wisdom of a Medal of Honor Recipient. Annapolis, Md: Naval Institute Press, 2011.
