VHP Works with Students to Thank Veterans

Barbara Hatch of the VHP, speaks to the community about the importance of conencting generations.










PHOENIX, Arizona – One of the benefits of the military way of life is that service members come in all shapes and sizes from all walks of life. The uniqueness of the military is its diversity and inclusiveness. Service members, both past and present are known for their character. The Veteran’s Heritage Project focuses on connecting school children with military veterans in their communities through programs that develop appreciation for America. Veterans Heritage Project is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to connecting students with veterans in order to record and preserve the stories of their service to our nation in the Veterans History Project of the US Library of Congress for future generations. The program, though, is more than a history preservation project. VHP offers students an opportunity to learn history from primary sources and skills in communication, writing, technology, and project management. It enables them to achieve a new sense of purpose, whether in their daily school activities, pursuit of higher education, or choices in careers. Their program exudes such character attributes as citizenship, generosity, gratefulness, orderliness, and respect.
