We hosted 33 Beulah Heights 4th Grade Students on Thursday, February 15. Lis Richard, Education Development Director, led an in-person Medal of Honor Class that included a student challenge to read and select their favorite Medal of Honor Recipient quote from the gallery of Portraits of Valor. After class, the students walked the “Walk of Valor” across Veterans Bridge along the Historic Pueblo Riverwalk.
Former U.S. Army Captain Larry L. Taylor passed away at his home in Signal Mountain, Tennessee on January 28, 2024. Captain Taylor was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Joe Biden at the White House on September 5, 2023, for his heroic actions and conspicuous gallantry while serving as a helicopter pilot with Troop D (Air), 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 1st Infantry Division, during the Vietnam War in 1968.
