We are a collection of educators seeking to bring veterans and their stories into the classroom.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage educators to include veterans and their stories in the classroom.  We believe that true learning comes from real world experiences, and our veterans are a valuable source of knowledge and wisdom.
