The Mighty Endeavor is a Veteran's Legacies project focused on three things: Preserving our heritage, Honoring our veterans, and Educating our youth through direct contact with the men and women who have answered the call to serve our country.
PRESERVE: Our goal is to collect and preserve more than a Million Veterans’ personal stories and experiences, through their unvarnished firsthand accounts, photos, historical documents and records, imagery, and video interviews.
HONOR: We honor our veterans’ service and personal sacrifice by reconnecting them with their communities. Giving them a voice and an audience to hear it. Ensuring that each veteran’s selfless service is given due respect.
EDUCATE: We combine an inclusive academic curriculum and special community events to give students the chance to learn history and to connect with the men and women who have helped preserve our rights and freedoms.
The Mighty Endeavor curriculum is designed to encourage students to learn history directly from the men and women who made it, while helping students learn data entry, journalism, video production, research, and communication skills.
Left untold, these irreplaceable stories will fade away along with the opportunity to honor and learn firsthand from those who can best help us understand the impact of war and the value of service. Sharing these stories gives veterans a powerful opportunity to connect with our youth in a meaningful way.
Our efforts to Preserve, Honor, and Educate are also intended to help our veterans reintegrate with the community they served while giving our youth a new and unique perspective on the sacrifices that have been made to ensure their freedom.
We need your support to help us continually provide the curriculum at no cost and engage veterans and students nationwide.
