Valor Awards for WWI VeteransPresented by Dr. Timothy Westcott

A Valor Medals Review Project and Task Force made up of researchers and historians is performing a systematic investigation of World War I American soldiers, who may have been overlooked for high-valor awards at the time based on race or religion. Dr. Westcott will discuss the project, collecting digitizing Great War artifacts, and facilitating educational programming in partnership with Park University.
