Memorial Day

We all owe our veterans and current armed forces a huge thank you for all they have done and continue to do for us.

This movie, titled The Sky Soldiers, follows the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam in various situations, including protecting a rice harvest. Click this link to be taken to the movie:

For Love of Liberty, a new PBS special

A new PBS documentary For Love of Liberty: The Story of America’s Black Patriots, details the military contributions of African Americans.

The U.S. Army created an edited 25-minute version of the film and corresponding high school and college facilitator guides.  The materials, structured to fit a classroom timeframe, are versatile and can compliment studies in American history, civics, social studies and ROTC programs.

Two professors holding PhD’s in curriculum development created the facilitator guides.  These guides define course outcomes, general information, important facts and post viewing questions for each chapter.

The chapters of the film are divided according to wars, which allow educators the option to adapt the materials to fit specific topical discussions.  The 25-minute version can be shown in its entirety or according to appropriate content.  Either way, educators can customize the video footage to support several presentation formats.

We are lucky enough to have access to each chapter and accompanying questions for both high school and college.

Chapter 1: Introduction

Chapter 2: The Revolution

Chapter 3: The Civil War

Chapter 4: WWI

Chapter 5: WWII

Chapter 6: The Korean War

Chapter 7: The Vietnam War

Chapter 8: The Middle East
