I would like to thank Mr. Small for his generosity, dedication, and vision. I will always remember the soldiers that sacrificed their lives to secure our freedom.
Thank you to Dr. Gorn for working tirelessly with National History Day to organize the 2011 Institute.
A very warm thank you to Ann Claunch and her husband John. Without their support this experience would not have been possible.
Thanks also to Dr. Long for his time and patience. He is a wonderful teacher.
Thanks to all the teachers, especially Mrs. Lisa Johansen, and all of the students who traveled with me on this journey.
Thank you to Marie Parys and her mother Angela Lombardo who shared their personal stories of Pfc. Michael Macera.
Special thanks to Mike Kern who worked tirelessly researching the soldiers and mentoring me through this process.
