Medal of Honor Legacy:

World War II


July 28 – August 2, 2019

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

Often called the Greatest Generation, those who served in World War II are now passing away, but their actions are worthy of remembrance and examination. 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. An examination of events  in the European and Pacific theaters will assist participants in expanding classroom experiences offered to their students.
