Now VVMF has created the Teach Vietnam Teachers' Network, a group of educators from across the country appointed as educational ambassadors from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
It is imperative that students fully understand the Vietnam War and its impact on our nation," said Jan Scruggs, VVMF president, Vietnam vet and VFW member.
VVMF hosted a four-day, all-expenses-paid conference for the teachers July 17-21, 2002.
The bill that granted VVMF
two acres at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial passed the Senate in just seven minutes on April 30, 1980.
Once the design was selected, PVA immediately became involved with VVMF
to assure accessibility and, in particular, to avoid potential problems for wheelchair users.
To assist and guide the VVMF in assembling and putting together such a wide variety of information, an advisory board was established.
The advisory board is charged with a vital task," according to the VVMF.
The Fujitsu iPADs will truly enhance visitors' experience at The Wall," said Jan Scruggs, founder and president of VVMF.
Worstell, who was instrumental in securing Fujitsu's donation to the VVMF, said that the iPAD computers will be a welcome change from the heavy paper directories that he and about 75 other volunteers have used previously.
