“Just 4 Kids” Program March 9, 2-4 pm
Swap stories with a servicewoman who disguised herself as a man to fight in the American Revolution, chat with the only woman to be awarded the prestigious Medal of Honor and get the autograph of a present day servicewoman. Discover amazing stories of patriotism and courage in the individual experiences of servicewomen from the American Revolution to the present. Meet these women face to face, listen to their stories, ask them questions and uncover clues to find out who these women really are. Learn about the past and how the events of yesteryear affect our lives today.
