The Appalachian WWII Veterans Organization presents the WWII Symposium
The Appalachian WWII Veterans Association was created to recognize and honor all WWII veterans, especially those in the High Country, and to educate our youth about the incredible sacrifices these veterans have made for us.
The World War II Symposium will be held May 18th at the Watauga High School (WHS) in Boone, NC.
The symposium will feature interviews with local veterans and WHS students (who have studied them) detailing their experiences, Q&A time with the veterans, discussions, presentations, and more!
Our veterans are living history books to the greatest event of the 20th Century. Our goals is to pass on what really happened when a young man or woman of 18 or younger was jerked up and sent across the ocean to fight for the rest of the world.
