Over the past two decades, The American Veterans Center's Annual Conference has drawn thousands of attendees including high school, college, and military academy students along with veterans from around the country. The conference provides these attendees a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear history directly from those who were there. Veterans from World War II through the present day share their lessons, experiences, and combat stories that are often left out of history books to the young, future leaders of our nation.
Live video from the American Veterans Center Veterans Conference is streamed below.
The conference reminds all of the sacrifices made by America's service members, while simultaneously serving as the Center's primary event for collecting oral histories to be used for programming throughout the year.
