The American Vision – Eagle Scout On A Mission! – With Joshua Katz – Creator of POW-MIA-OREE & His Proud Father David
POW-MIA-OREE: “No Soldiers Name & Service Is Ever Forgotten Again”
Joshua Katz created POW-MIA-OREE (Outdoor Remembrance Educational Event) to show respect for our Veterans and their families by honoring the sacrifices they made to support the liberties and freedoms of America. POW-MIA-OREE, a non-profit organization, is the only event that “live reads” the names of all the soldiers interred at National Cemeteries. After the reading, a custom challenge coin is placed on every headstone for the Veterans families (as a keepsake), representing that “No Soldier Should Ever Be Forgotten.” This reading is in support of National POW-MIA Remembrance Day.

Joshua earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of thirteen. Being an Eagle Scout is a great honor that is more than a badge, it’s a state of being. The Eagle Scout Promise is to do your best each day to make your training and example, your rank and your influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in your troop, in your community, and in your contacts with other people.
2016 NESA Adams Eagle Project of the Year
Joshua was awarded the 2016 Adams Eagle Project of the Year Award for Gulf Stream Council. The National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award (ESSPY) to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by an Eagle Scout candidate to a religious institution, a school, community or other entity through completion of an Eagle Scout project.

Sons of The American Legion
Joshua is the Commander of Sons of the American Legion Squadron 390 which he founded because there were no local Sons of the American Legion Squadrons that are youth run.
Joshua was named the 2nd VA Legacy Keeper. A VA Legacy Keeper is a nationally recognized person, titled by the VA Under Secretary Randy Reeves as a person with uncommon dedication to preserving and sharing the legacy of America’s Veterans by honoring and serving Veterans, their families and their community with great distinction. Joshua and his services were highlighted as a full-page story in the “VA Year in Review,” an internal magazine for VA employees that highlights the most notable things that happened during the past year in each VA district.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
