The National Cemetery Administration hosted a day of learning at Florida National Cemetery. Florida middle school students met with University of Central Florida students to learn about the impact Veterans made in national, state, and local history. Through the Veterans Legacy Program, college students presented their research to the next generation.
“Today we honor our nation’s Veterans; those buried here and those in our hearts ,” said Dr. Amelia Lyons, Associate Professor at the University of Central Florida. “We are going to learn about the lives and legacies about the men and women who made the commitment to serve our nation in the armed forces.” National Cemetery Administration: www.cem.va.gov/ Veterans Legacy Program: www.cem.va.gov/cem/legacy/education.asp
