Passing the Torch of Freedom on Independence Day

By Craig Gilman
Faculty Member at American Military University

Make July 4th memorable in 2015. Share this heritage and make it fun and meaningful for following generations. There are a number of ways Americans traditionally celebrate Independence Day. First and foremost, take the time to reflect, not only on the value of our independence and freedoms, but also the civic responsibilities and duties that go with them.

Portraits of Valor: World War II Veterans from Around the World

By Nicole Crowder
The Washington Post

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, and as veterans of that generation grow older, recording their memories of their experiences during this critical turning point in history has become more important for posterity. Five years ago, photographer Sasha Maslov began making portraits of men and women from around the world who served in the war. In intimate profiles, Maslov shares brief stories of the lives of those who served in different roles, whether on the ground fighting, in tiny European villages treating the injured, as partisans, or as prisoners of war.
