Skypeck re­ceives DAR Medal of Honor

Maryland Independent - - Community -

The Mary­land Daugh­ters of the Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion (DAR) awarded its Medal of Honor to Ge­orge L. Skypeck, an artist and vet­er­ans ad­vo­cate who was a Cap­tain in the U.S. Army Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Forces dur­ing the Viet­nam War.

Skypeck, of Ac­co­keek, has been a dis­tin­guished mem­ber of the art and vet­eran’s com­mu­nity for more than 50 years. His works com­mem­o­rate the ser­vice of Amer­i­can war­riors and vet­er­ans.

“As­sured Vic­tory”, his tribute to the fight against global ter­ror­ism that was dis­played and up­dated at Ar­ling­ton Na­tional Ceme­tery for more than a decade, is cur­rently on view at the Char­lotte Hall Vet­er­ans Home.

The DAR, a women’s ser­vice or­ga­ni­za­tion founded in 1890, is ded­i­cated to pre­serv­ing Amer­i­can his­tory and se­cur­ing the Amer­i­can fu­ture through ed­u­ca­tion and pa­tri­o­tism.

The DAR Medal of Honor is a pres­ti­gious award given to an In­di­vid­ual cit­i­zen who has demon­strated through­out a life­time the val­ues of pa­tri­o­tism, lead­er­ship, ser­vice, and trust­wor­thi­ness.
