(Studio: Kate Snow) Report introduced.

(Acton, California: Mike Taibbi) Maj. Gen. Pat Brady and Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall, who are part of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation’s character development program that trains teachers how to translate the values learned a half century ago in combat to today’s youth, featured; details given about their bravery during the Vietnam war; scenes shown from a school in Acton, California. [BRADY – says it’s to make heroes out of young people like you.] [GIRL – says she will have the courage to say no to drugs or alcohol.] [NBC military analyst retired Col. Jack JACOBS – says if we don’t translate notions like service and patriotism to the next generation then all the sacrifice will be for naught.] [CRANDALL – says it’s harder to wear the medal than it is to get it.] [GIRL – says they did make this world a better place.]
