History is full of facts and figures, important information providing a timeline for significant world, national and local events. But our book, "Mettle & Honor, Wisconsin Stories from the Battlefield," provides an important supplement to history education, personal accounts from Wisconsin veterans from World War Two to present day of what they endured physically and emotionally, risking their lives to serve our country. Were they frightened? Did war change them? How did they adjust to civilian life when their service ended? "Mettle & Honor" provides an insightful look at these often overlooked elements of military history. And since our book is based on video interviews, we'll also provide video links to each veteran's interview so students can see and hear these vets and get a sense of their personalities in addition to reading their stories. Our presentation to WCSS will cover all of these elements including samples of the veterans' stories.
