Students from our school district have participated in History Day for several years. Through History Day, sponsored by the Army Heritage Center Foundation, our students have gained a greater love for history as well as the excitement of meeting other people and competing with them.

The Army Heritage Foundation is the lifeblood of the state level contest for National History Day. They also maintain the Army Heritage Center whose doors have always been open to students who want to learn more about our American past. The staff is patient, hard working, dedicated and willing to accept advice and suggestions. History Day in PA lost its primary sponsor and the AMEC Foundation stepped in and saved the very existance of this vital student program. I am forever grateful to the Foundation for caring about educating our future leaders.

I coordinated with the foundation to get WWI & WWII information for 5th & 6th grade classes. They were prompt in getting me several sets of multi-media to use for the classes.

The Military Heritage Foundation allows students of all middle school and high school ages express their interest in History. They learn to research, act, computer skills and cooperation in addition to the wonderful history topic they choose to learn about. We have been competing in the competition for about 25 years and it has been a wonderful learning experience for all students and faculty involved.

The Military Heritage Foundation is a great group of people working hard to get the U.S. Military's history out there so that people can learn about it for no cost. I helped with National History Day, and I also worked on compiling some biographies that will be made available to the public. It's a great nonprofit and will help to do many great things for military history in he future.

The soldier's story is told in an individual way through historical presentations, research and public events and displays. As the country has grown in size and diversity, the story of the millions of people who have provided service and dedication should be learned by each generation. The Military Heritage Foundation does that every day of the year.

My National History Day always counts on the Military Heritage Foundation as an access point to locate relevant sources we're having trouble finding. For example, this year, we need a military medical journal article from the early 30s. The Military Heritage Foundation was not only able to locate the article we needed, they worked with us on the cost of reproduction because we are students. That is the kind of support that helps to make historical research possible for high school students, who can't get into the Library of Congress.
