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:

WWII women on the American homefront


Most of us are familiar with the “Rosie the Riveter” poster and other images of women working in factories during WWII.

The US Women’s Bureau has a wealth of black and white photos capturing women taking over the jobs left behind during the war years.

We have included nine photos that are high resolution and show a variety of women in various jobs that are ready for your classroom use.
