School Field Trips

Lessons that go beyond the textbook

Reach into the past, and immerse your students in the true cost of their freedoms.

Our team customizes educational tours to ensure they have a lasting impact. Younger generations learn that the peaceful circumstances they enjoy today are a direct result of sacrifices by brave men and women.

Informative and moving video

Missouri Governor Mike Parson introduces visitors to Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial in a short video. This video gives America’s conflicts context, showing the emotional effects and traumas they impose on veterans and their families.

Site overview and brief history

How our site came to be is a remarkable story and one that inspires. Young or older, students are captivated by a Perryville man’s enduring will to keep a promise – and how that promise led him to donate $2.1 million for the sake of our site.

America’s Wall

Our presenters research your school’s county and find names for students to locate on the Wall. This activity gives students – especially younger children – a connection to the struggles of Vietnam and the greater repercussions of war itself.

Reflection essay

Most educators have students compose a reflection assignment after their tour. In this report, students are encouraged to discuss

 

• what they learned

• if and how their feelings toward veterans have changed

• how they plan to honor veterans and show gratitude

• how they will talk to relatives who are veterans about their experiences
