A Day for Children at AHEC
The Army Heritage Center Foundation, with sponsorships from the Carlisle Barracks Spouses Club and the Carlisle Barracks and Cumberland Valley Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), hosted a Day at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center for the children of Carlisle Barracks military and civilian staff. Jeff Hawks, Education Program Director for the Army Heritage Center Foundation explained that the intent of the program was to “allow the children of assigned families to gain an appreciation of the history of the Army and to see the resources of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center.” During the day long program, the attendees met living historians along the Army Heritage Trail who depicted Soldiers from our colonial era forward and who described their experiences as Soldiers.
