This 3-day weekend is typically a time for barbeques, family gatherings, and maybe even some early vacation trips. Most of us know that the day signifies more than just time away from work. It’s a time to reflect, and to revere the sacrifices made by others so that we can enjoy our freedoms. During this hour of Top of Mind, we’re going to learn about efforts to collect solders’ letters, which give us important glimpses into life during wartime. We’ll also examine how memorials impact communities after traumatic events. And finally, we are going to learn about efforts to preserve veterans’ memories.
