McCloughan visited RBHS Friday

James “Doc” McCloughan

On Friday, Sept. 30, veteran and Medal of Honor recipient James “Doc” McCloughan spoke out about his experience in the Vietnam War. But along with that, he spoke of the importance of building character.

McCloughan, who is from Michigan, was drafted into the Army in 1968 during the Vietnam War. He served as a combat medic and in one battle alone, was credited with going into the “kill zone” on 10 occasions to save the lives of fellow soldiers, despite being injured himself. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was presented to him in 2017.
