Veterans’ Tales by Vassar Bushmills
These lectures are free. Print out and use as you please.
We’re putting these out into the public domain, as it will help get these lectures in front of the several veterans groups, civic organizations and interested school-parent groups.
If you’ve got a knack, and itch to teach young minds, and would like to make some spare cash a few nights a month, simply use at your pleasure.
It would be nice, but you don’t even have to say you’re part of our Program.
We have been sending messages to foundations and veterans groups, but since there are at least three levels of communication before our message actually gets in the hands of a decision-maker…well you know how that works out.
So we thought it best for to create a pipeline directly to the Veteran. After all, this is for the purpose of teaching young students at the community level, wherever a VFW post or American Legion lodge can be found. There are also dozens of parent groups, private schools, maybe even some public school teachers, who are concerned about all the necessary things about America students are no longer being taught.
Our first lecture is “The First Principle of Being American”. I recommend this as a first lecture for I used it for years teaching several college classes of inner-city mothers attempting to get a degree, and it laid the foundation for 24 hours of instruction in American history and government, which they had to have for a degree.
I simply threw the textbook out and taught the course as a series of things they never even considered about their country, and how those things are very relevant in their lives.
I used the same opening lecture for every class, because it made their jaws drop every time.
From this “First Principle of Being American” you can spin future lectures in several different directions. There is no necessary order. In fact, your interaction with your students may give you some ideas I haven’t thought of. (Just call me.) .
I’ll provide several more Lessons here.
These Lessons are offered free of charge. You don’t have to pay us a penny. But once you get a regular paying client base or sponsor it would be nice if you’d send a little back to us through our Donor Page.
Subject Matter: Go to VeteransTales.org/ VETS IN CLASS, and review the articles already there. They explain why Veterans are needed in the classroom because of the things about Service to, and the Uniqueness of America are no longer taught in American public schools….and why this is so.
They also go on to explain why Veterans, above any other group, are most qualified to connect and teach these young students[…]
