Medal of Honor Town Hall Forum at Lipscomb University

Lipscomb University will host on Friday, Aug. 7, one of three public Medal of Honor town hall forums as a part of Nashville Salutes, a three-day tribute to our country’s greatest heroes coordinated by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. Three of the 79 living Medal of Honor Recipients – Lt. Tom Kelley, Sp4c.Gary Wetzel and 1st Lt. Brian Thacker – will share their life experiences in Lipscomb’s Swang Business Center, at 9 a.m. They will speak on how courage, sacrifice, patriotism and citizenship have shaped their lives. The Lipscomb town hall forum will offer members of the community a truly unique opportunity – the chance to interact personally with these three individuals who have offered their lives on behalf of the welfare of the United States of America. Rudy Kalis, WSMV anchor and a veteran of the United States Air Force, will lead the Medal of Honor Recipients in a question-and-answer session and then will open the floor for community members to also ask questions directly to the veterans. Special guest Many-Bears Grinder, Tennessee Department of Veterans Services commissioner, will also participate in the event, which will include videos of the three recipients present, all Vietnam War veterans, depicting their personal testimonies and the heroic efforts that led to their Medals of Honor.
