Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski to receive U.S. Army medal
Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will receive the highest award presented by the Association of the United States Army. The award, the 2014 George Catlett Marshall Medal, will be given to Krzyzewski Wednesday night at the George Catlett Marshall Memorial Dinner in Washington, D.C.
"As an exceptional patriot, Mike Krzyzewski is not only an American icon familiar to the nation while pacing on the sidelines during a Blue Devils basketball game, but he is also an extraordinary mentor to our nation’s youth – both military and civilian.
"He is acclaimed for successfully molding character, mentoring our young men and women, and developing leadership through his example and athletic programs," AUSA President Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan, USA, Ret., said.
