Today, Melrose High School freshman history students had an amazing opportunity to meet with veterans of several different wars, from World War II onward, as well as active duty servicemen and servicewomen—a real interactive history lesson—as part of the Veterans in the Classroom program. The students were responsible for interviewing these past and present members of our military and producing biographies of them. Members of Melrose High School’s Melrose Veterans Memory Project also interviewed them to further document their live and their experiences serving our nation. This program, done in collaboration with the City of Melrose Veterans Department and the Melrose Public Schools, is getting bigger every year. Many thanks to Melrose High School teacher Lisa Lord, Veterans Services Officer Ryan McLane, and Veterans Services Advisory Board Chair Bob Driscoll for this incredible intergenerational history lesson that these young students will never forget.
