Welcoming them Home: The UCF UCF Veterans Oral History Project (In Person)

April 26 @ 1:00 pm

Join us in person for Welcoming them Home: The UCF Veterans Oral History Project on Tuesday, April 26 at 1 PM in Community Conference Center

Do you have a U.S. military veteran in your life? Have you helped to preserve his or her story for history? Not only is doing so an important service to the community, but it is also a fantastic way to honor their service. Join Barbara A. Gannon, Ph.D., an associate professor of History at the University of Central Florida and the coordinator of the UCF Community Veterans History Project, as she shares details about the extraordinary work being done right here in our community to preserve these stories for generations to come, including other veterans-oriented initiatives, the Veterans Month of Honor and Remembrance at UCF and the Veterans School Supply Vault. The UCF Community Veterans History Project has collected hundreds of oral histories of Central Florida veterans. We invite you to tag along, hear of the real sacrifices by our nation’s soldiers and learn how to be a part of history.
