Additional Information

Join us for a conversation with Medal of Honor Recipient, James McCloughan, followed by a Q&A.

James McCloughan received the Medal of Honor on July 31, 2017, for his valor in saving the lives of 10 members of his platoon at the Battle Nui Yon Hill in May 1969. McCloughan was 23 and serving as a medic when he returned to the battlefield multiple times over 48 hours of fighting to retrieve the wounded soldiers, despite being hit himself with grenade shrapnel and gunfire.

McCloughan left the service with a rank of specialist five and returned to Michigan. He taught psychology and sociology at South Haven High School and coached football, wrestling and baseball.

This event is sponsored by generous gifts from the American Legion, Palisades Post 283 and the Westwood Village Rotary Club.
