Visit from Sgt McCauley

Sgt Bret McCauley, twice awarded the Purple Heart for his service as a US Marine in Iraq, came to speak to my classes today.  He was seriously injured in an explosion from a suicide bomber in Fallujah in 2003.  His message was that you can't control what happens to you, but you can control your reaction.

Here is what was left of the truck that Sgt McCauley was travelling in when he was injured.


  1. This was AMAZING!!!!!!

  2. HE'S AWESOME! It's funny cause while me and my friend were making fun of each other, you and Sgt passed by and my friend pointed at Sgt saying, "WOAH LOOK AT HIM!" hahahahaha.

    I had to tell her that he was a sgt:)She had sparkly eyes the whole day.:D

  3. Wow he's super cool! He's such a great person. We have to have guest speakers more often! Haha it made my day (:
