WWII and Vietnam Veteran Interviews

Earlier this month my US History classes visited a local retirement home, Fellowship Square, to interview the WWII and Vietnam veterans residing there. Obviously, listening to real stories from the people who experienced them is a better learning opportunity than me attempting to recount war history in the classroom. I am grateful to Chaplain Al Story, who has helped me arrange this extremely beneficial field trip for the last two years. Not only do the next generation of students gain a deeper understanding of history, but the elders in our local community are able to share their stories and impart bits of wisdom they might otherwise not get the opportunity to do.

Here are screenshots of the PDF the class put together as a result of our time spent with these wonderful veterans.
