The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the launch of the Veterans Legacy Program to memorialize veterans' service and sacrifice through public educational programming. The program will use resources at VA national cemeteries and online educational resources such as lesson plans, interactive maps and short video vignettes. The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) will co-sponsor a "Teachers Institute," a workshop for educators. Information about the program can be found on the Veterans Legacy Program webpage. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blogs here and here.
