Monuments and Markers Project

 

Introduction

This webpage electronically records the work originally begun in 2005 to document all the military monuments and markers in the Lehigh Valley (Lehigh and Northampton counties) for the purposes of promoting awareness of our local veterans’ contributions in service to our nation and to encourage public officials and citizens’ groups to adopt and care for sometimes forgotten memorials.

The sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform who have gone before us must never be forgotten. Their willingness to defend this nation has secured us freedoms, rights and blessings. Therefore, when we erect war monuments to our military history, they should do more than serve as remembrances of individuals and their feats. They ought give us pause to reflect on why these men and women served at the particular times in our history. Only then can we hope to give their sacrifices meaning and everlasting value.

 Community Educational Outreach

“For Them”

The following, carefully selected links are provided to teachers, counselors and students in the Lehigh Valley in an effort to help them understand the value and importance of our military, veterans and their families in our communities.  These sites will also help in the understanding the challenges that these families – particularly children – may face as members of our school communities.

 
This web page is part of a new LVMAC Community Educational Outreach Program intended to sensitize counselors, teachers and the students they serve to the value and importance of our military, veterans and their families to our own communities and our nation throughout our history.  Our hope is to foster the desire for greater understanding of the challenges they may face as members of our school communities while contributing to an evolving democratic society which requires no military service obligation from its citizens – thus, having less direct knowledge and understanding of their particular needs.  The program also desires to stimulate more efforts from our veterans and others to the benefit of our school districts and the children of military and veterans within them. Education is key to the survival of our nation as a democracy.

  Veterans Reading Brigade


 

Part of the Community Educational Outreach Program effort.  After gaining a school district’s approval, the Reading Brigade brings our community’s veterans into its elementary schools to read short stories to the school children. The pre-approved book read is either of a historical or military nature, and is then donated to the classroom along with an educator’s guide. 

For more information about the program, to volunteer as a reader or to request a reader at an elementary school, contact our Team Leader, Robin Carmody, by telephone at 610-972-7371 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. m.
