Veterans Legacy Program

Students participating at a Veterans Legacy Program event.

"It got to a point (in history class) where I didn’t think of the people as real…until I went and stood by people's gravestones." - Veterans Legacy Program student participant

The Veterans Legacy Program commemorates our nation's Veterans through the discovery and sharing of their stories. VLP encourages students and teachers at the University and K-12 level around the country to immerse themselves in the rich historical resources found within NCA national cemeteries. Participants research Veterans interred in national cemeteries and develop educational tools that increase public awareness of Veteran service and sacrifice.

Founded on Memorial Day, 2016, Veterans Legacy Program has established itself as a leading model of community engagement. Partners from across the country have created VLP products and events that reflect the unique impact of Veterans on their local community. VLP continues to grow and expand its reach and welcomes anyone interested in learning more to contact us.
