April 20 Veterans Legacy Program at Santa Fe National Cemetery: World War II Portraits of Service: Native American Code Talkers

The Dennis O'Leary tombstone at Santa Fe National Cemetery. In partnership with the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program, we are pleased to offer free professional development sessions in spring 2024 focusing on different aspects of American Veterans’ and Service Members’ lives on and off the battlefield and how to effectively bring that content back to the classroom. As a part of this series, we are now offering an in-person workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

April 20, 2024, 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. MT
