James McCloughan Webinar Interview
Join us for an interview with Medal of Honor Recipient James McCloughan who received his award for service in the Army in Vietnam.
Mr. McCloughan was raised in the rural area of Bangor, MI. Drafted into the United States Army in 1968, he served as a combat medic with the Americal Division where he rose to the rank of Specialist Five. In one battle alone “Doc” McCloughan has been credited with moving into the “kill zone” on ten occasions, saving ten American lives and one Vietnamese interpreter’s life. In 2017, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest military commendation.
In 1970, upon returning home from service to our country, Mr. McCloughan resumed his contract with South Haven Public Schools and in 1972 earned an MA in counseling. Remaining with South Haven High School for thirty-eight years, he taught psychology and sociology while coaching football, wrestling, baseball, and American Legion Baseball.
Since retirement McCloughan has remained dedicated to his community and the nation, as a member of non-profit organizations, serving multiple charitable projects, assuming roles on boards and preforming as a vocalist.
An ideal opportunity for Middle and High School students to hear directly from a Medal of Honor Recipient, this webinar will include pre-submitted and live audience questions in an interview moderated by Congressional Medal of Honor Society Executive Director of Education, Cathy Ehlers Metcalf.View Webinar
