Craig Blackman, a history teacher at Indian River High School in Chesapeake, Virginia has been awarded the Veterans of Foreign Wars Teacher of the Year Award for the work he’s done teaching high school students about the Vietnam War and its fallen heroes. He won the award for a project he set up for his students to research the stories of 25 fallen Chesapeake soldiers killed in the Vietnam War. In addition to helping the students learn more about the war it turned out to give some of those families closure and respect.

We salute Craig Blackman for a job well done.
