Veterans Day 2019

Veterans Day

Always Rember the Sacrifice

On this Veterans Day, please take some time today to think of our Veterans. When doing so, consider all the sacrifices the Veteran has made on our behalf. Sacrifice includes sweat, time away from family, and loss of limb, mind, or life. Veterans have risen to the challenge to ensure our safety and freedoms. Always remember that Veterans have made this a great country like no other in the world.

Featured Oral History Interview

The most popular and impactful oral history interview so far from the Making History Project appears to be from Justin Graham, a paratrooper from the 82nd Airborne. Justin did three combat tours and the emotions during the interview are raw and real. Today would be great day to take the time to see the impact that combat can have on our young soldiers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsLshzN1pxU&feature=youtu.be
