A real life American hero will be honored during a performance at Lake Michigan College’s Mendel Center this upcoming weekend. Center Director Mike Nadolski tells WSJM News Jim McCloughan, of South Haven, is a Medal of Honor winner for his efforts to save lives as a medic in Vietnam. He’s been invited to take part in Sunday’s Letters Home performance.
“They’ll introduce him, he’ll take the stage, and he’s going to sing a Michael Buble song called Home, which he’s adapted to depict the story of a solider in a way away from his girlfriend or wife and his family and friends,” Nadolski said.
Afterward, McCloughan will do a Q&A session. Nadolski tells us Lest we Forget has organized the program, and proceeds from Sunday’s event will go to its own efforts. McCloughan is a lifelong South Haven resident who many know as a coach. Tickets for Sunday are $25 and you can get them at TheMendelCenter.com.
