This year 241 veterans graciously shared their stories with our students, and allowed them to preserve their legacy in Since You Asked, and in the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress. We know that our students were humbled, enriched, and moved by our veterans' experiences.
We had been looking forward to commemorating the culmination of our program this year through our Community Receptions and Book Signings. In March we postponed these events to August, in hopes that summer would bring relief from COVID-19. Sadly, it has become clear that all regional events must be cancelled. The large audience size and a physical book signing are not possible, while also being respectful of social distancing and caring for the safety of our veterans and our students. All 2020 veterans will still be able to enjoy the book signing experience by participating in 2021 events.
