A Medal of Honor Recipient at Governor's Academy

Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Today, retired Navy Captain Thomas G. Kelley spoke to the Governor's community. He discussed his military career, his present work with the Veteran's Administration, and his views on war. He encouraged everyone to find a way to serve one's country or community. When asked if his service was worth the price he paid in terms of his injuries, he replied that it was a very worthwhile time. He continued to serve theNavy for 22 years after he received the Medal of Honor.
After his talk, Captain Kelley signed the library's copy of Medal of Honor: Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty.
