April 17, 2013 from 6-8pm at the World's Fair Park Amphitheater
The Great Smoky Mountain Council has partnered with the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation to sponsor an evening with retired Colonel Joe Marm, a recipient of the Medal of Honor and an Eagle Scout.
Today there are 80 living recipients of the Medal of Honor in our country. Like Scouts, the Medal of Honor represents well the very best things that make our country great: Courage, Integrity, Service, Citizenship, Patriotism, and Sacrifice. This short video<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWELL-ONw30> explains it very well.
We found this hard to believe, but COL Marm has never before addressed a group of Scouts like he will in Knoxville, so he is very excited for the opportunity to meet our youth! Joe is an extremely nice man and will have a terrific, age-appropriate message for our youth & families. There will be water and light snacks available. Joe will also be available to shake hands with our youth to meet them personally.
