016 Minnesota Congressioal Medal of Honor Recipients – an Armchair Power point presentation
Celebrate America With a Powerpoint Presentation of Minnesota Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients by Author, Speaker June Gossler Anderson
When the National Medal of Honor Committee decided to hold its annual convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul on October 3, 2016, it asked the Minnesota Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to research and write the biographies of the 72 Minnesota men who have received this prestigious award—their country’s highest honor. This was a good fit for the DAR which advocates education, historical preservation, and service to veterans.
June Gossler Anderson was one of the 27 women participating in this project. In addition to writing four of the bios, she took the research a step farther and saw to the editing and publishing of these bios in a 242 page book, Minnesota Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War to Vietnam.
During her hour long power point presentation of this book you will meet the 14 year-old Orphan who was awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism during a Civil War battle; the Schoolmaster who took his students to war, dooming their hometown to oblivion; a Buffalo Soldier; the Commander of the USS Arizona who went down with his ship at Pearl Harbor; a Hungarian Freedom Fighter who signed up to fight Commies in Vietnam; and a host of other brave men who fought and died for their country.
Proceeds from the sale of this book are used to support Haven for Heroes, Housing for homeless Vets.
