With funding from the NEH, faculty at Jefferson Community College (JCC) designed a course for veteran students that would offer them the chance to build camaraderie and reflect on their military experiences. Dialogues of Honor and Sacrifice: Soldiers’ Experiences in the Civil War and the Vietnam War, part of the Dialogues on the Experience of War program, was offered to 15 students in 2018. Veterans took a trip to Washington, D.C., then read works about the Civil and Vietnam Wars, and discussed themes of honor and sacrifice. Ultimately, this Dialogues program offered veterans a much-desired opportunity to connect with and learn from others, while fostering self-reflection.
