High School Students Record Vietnam War Veterans for History Class
STUDENTS LEARN FROM VIETNAM VETERANS
Auburn High School History students get a unique opportunity just by being in class.
For the past five years, students have interviewed Vietnam War veterans to learn more about the sacrifices made by military families and to preserve their stories.
In past years, the interviews have been conducted at the school. But this year AP History teacher Blake Busbin wanted to offer both the veterans and the students an enhanced experience at the National Infantry Museum.
Interviews will ran 45-90 minutes long. Students will rotated conducting the interviews and touring the museum.
After the event on March 28th, the students transcribed the interviews which will then be submited to the Library of Congress.
Having captured more than 200 stories, Busbin says this will be the last year for the Veterans Project. However he is looking at other key historical events for future students to focus on.
