Memorial Day 2018

Memorial Day is almost here, but honoring the men and women who sacrifice on our behalf continues throughout the year.  The Veterans History Project (VHP), was created by Congress in  to ‘collect, preserve, and make accessible the first-hand recollections of American war veterans.’ Older students will find it fascinating to read and listen to the recollections of our wartime veterans from World War I to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. The stories in the VHP collection are told by veterans of all races and ethnicities, from all branches of service, both men and women. Their stories range from tales of combat to details of everyday life
