Every month Gettysburg College sends out a newsletter to keep parents and alumni in the loop about events on campus. Each month there is a trivia question and the first correct response wins a free Gettysburg t-shirt. I like it because it gives me a reason to touch base with my alma mater and learn a little bit more about its history.

This month I learned about First Lieutenant Stephen Doane who was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1969 for his valor and ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. Read the official description here.
