"Freedom is Not Free" Tells Stories
Veterans Needed to Tell War Stories to Students
Learning about American war campaigns from people who witnessed them is a unique learning experience for students at Fossil Ridge High School and Preston Junior High School.
FRHS and Preston students are looking for veterans who are willing to tell them about their war experiences. Students will interview and record their stories online at “Freedom is not Free.” http://staffweb.psdschools.org/sdev/fnf/fnf.htm.
Although more than 1,200 biographies are already posted on the site, veterans are needed for interviews this year. FRHS students will make digital video interviews; junior high students will write out veteran’s stories. Each social studies student is assigned to interview two veterans.
“We would be honored to interview them, add their story to our project and welcome them to our Freedom is not Free party on Memorial Day the end of May,” explained Scott DeVries, social studies teacher.
Students are looking for veterans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan or Iraq. Veterans willing to tell students about their experiences are asked to contact DeVries, at 488-7300 or by email at email@example.com
