Medal of Honor Legacy:

World War II

 

June 21-26, 2020

Academic Director:
Gary Williams, M.P.A.
Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

Before long, World War II will be remembered only through history books, movies and still photos. Those veterans who can still share their oral histories have carried on a decades-long tradition of sharing their insights into Normandy, Iwo Jima and other battles on foreign soil. The actions of these distinguished soldiers are worthy of remembrance and examination of events. Their stories from the European and Pacific theaters will assist participants in expanding classroom experiences. Seminar participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody” Williams and other World War II veterans, as well as participate in exchanges with some of the nation’s leading scholars of the war. Mae Krier, an original “Rosie the Riveter,” also will talk with teachers about the role these courageous women played during the war.
