PONTIAC HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY CLASSES
Thanks to the Pontiac Township High School history department for arranging a very impactful field trip to our museum last week. Over two days, seven junior history classes had the opportunity to interact with twelve veterans on our staff. The students were studying the Vietnam war, but were also able to interview combat veterans of World War II and the Korean war, as well as other peacetime veterans. Our veterans were impressed by the students interest and enthusiasm for military history as students learned lessons impossible to learn by textbooks alone.
