The Writer's Block is a special section at the Hall of Heroes where everyday people can share their writings, poetry, art work, and other creative materials.  Since launching the website, numerous people have shared their own writings with us from time to time.  A few have even shared stories or poems that were favorites of a Medal of Honor recipient friend, father, or other relative.  We hope you will find some inspiration, education, and perhaps even some motivation from the stories and other materials shared in these pages.





Special Features

A year ago the 8th grade students at SACRED HEART Elementary School in Ville Platte conducted a special study on heroism, patriotism, and the Medal of Honor.  Each student adopted a Medal of Honor recipient from history, researched his life and heroism, and then wrote about him.  The culmination of this effort was a 40 page newspaper, published by the local newspaper.  Pictured at left is the cover for that project, featuring a photo of MOH recipient Jefferson DeBlanc visiting with some of the students.  Click on it to read the pages written by these students.
