On April 22, TRECA Digital Academy students visited the National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus, OH.
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum was established in 2018. The museum honors veterans from all branches of service, from all eras, during peacetime and wartime. Through a self-guided tour, students learned about veterans’ individual and shared experiences and the sacrifices they and their families made. The museum provided photos, letters, personal effects interactive exhibits, and digital content for students to learn about veterans experiences. Students also learned about the difficult transition from military to civilian life and the history of women in the armed forces, who were banned from combat until the 21st century. This was a great field trip that students and families really enjoyed!
