NCA Memorializing the Fallen
Teachers worked over the course of the program to create multi-disciplinary lesson plans to help teachers and students learn about the legacies of World War I and the Korean War, and the ways in which it impacted the twentieth century.
Teachers researched the life of a Silent Hero buried in Europe and offered a eulogy of this person as part of the institute, which can be seen at NHDSilentHeroes.org. They also researched the life of a veteran who returned from the war.
