Veterans History Project
History of the Sixties Service Learning Project: Veterans History Project
Seniors in Mrs. Talmadge’s History of the Sixties class participate in the Veterans History Project as part of their service learning for the semester. The Veterans History Project is an extension of the Library of Congress with the goal of collecting, preserving, and making accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans. Students have interviewed veterans from the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, and the current war in Afghanistan. At the end of each school year, students from both semesters host a celebratory breakfast for the veterans that have participated in the project.
