thriving Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force programs within the High School

are also encouraged to attend this day to afford them a more relaxed atmosphere
to interact with our reenactors. Educators and
university students are encouraged to work with our reenactors in developing
lesson plans pre and post event to assure that the student's experience is fully
fulfilled. The Education Day Program begins at 9:30 AM, Friday

In 2017, A Walk in Their Boots held our second annual Education Day. Approximately 110 students experienced first person impressions of Frontier Life during the American Revolution, Battlefield Medicine and Mess during the Civil War, Communications Equipment used on the shores of Normandy and the European Theater during World War Two, the Vietnam War, Enduring Freedom and modern readiness here at home. Children spent 10 to 15 minutes in each area as experienced living historians presented in character the use of equipment vital to each and every Soldier and Sailor. The children were encouraged to ask questions and interact with the reenactors as they provided their historical impressions. Certainly a very unique experience for all.
