A LIVING MEMORIAL OF SEPTEMBER 11

We connect schools and veterans in a recognition of 9/11 courage, resilience, and service

TEACHING ABOUT 9/11 AND ITS EFFECTS

Explore our free curriculum guide, a collection of six engaging lessons featuring 21st century wartime correspondences written in partnership with New York Times bestselling author Andrew Carroll.  Each lesson features firsthand accounts of troops, veterans, their families, and others who experienced 9/11 and the resulting wars firsthand.

CHALLENGING THE NARRATIVE

LED BY VETERANS | SERVING EDUCATORS

We are a veteran-led organization committed to serving educators

Our leadership team is composed of post-9/11 combat veterans with decades of experience serving the nation. We work tirelessly to provide high quality small group discussions with students where we offer our unique perspectives as eyewitnesses to history.

Our focus is on equipping educators to inspire their students about September 11th.  We help them to share uplifting stories about that day and provide the opportunity to extend learning beyond the classroom via field trips to the Flight 93 National Memorial.
