The Making of Heroes “Democracy has not come easy for United States. A long and deadly civil war can attest to that. Those who fill military roles believe the values of their country serve to make it a better country. Many American lives have been affected by the fighting and loss of life in various wars around the world in the past and today. Their heroism and why they fought for United States must never be forgotten.” www.usa-hero.com/military.html What makes a hero? One kind of hero is a military hero. Are there military heroes in your family tree? A website devoted to the stories of military heroes is http://www.usa-hero.com/military.html.http://www.usa-hero.com/military.html Read the page for General Benjamin Oliver Davis, Jr. It will give you a good idea of the kinds of information you will want to include in your essay. Perhaps your father, brother, aunt, grandparent, cousin, sister, or great-grandparent has an untold story of military service. This is your chance to write that story. Research that family hero. Interview him/her, your parents, and other family members who can help you with your research. Create a list of his/her achievements, like those in General Davis’s biography. Now choose the most meaningful achievements from the list to highlight in a 500 to 750-word essay about your family hero. You’ll want to write about your relationship to this hero and how the accomplishments of her/his service have inspired you and your family. Your finished document must be Arial 11 point font, 1 ½ spaced, and the text must be justified. The title must be centered at the top and your name must be centered under the title. Submit two copies of your essay to Mrs. Bennitt in room 41 no later than 1:00 on March 26 th or submit the document electronically, attached to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by that same email@example.com Essays will be selected for publication in a booklet to be presented to our guests at the Raa Dinner Theater on April 22 nd.
