Jake -- Below is an effort we started 10 years ago to teach the Vietnam War in classrooms locally and nationally. We also decided to include the Iraq War for  reasons you will see below.
 
We will be constantly adding new videos and adjusting from feedback from veterans
and educators.
Bob McMahon

I would like you to see the Veterans National Education Program's Initiative on both the Vietnam War and the Iraq War. We are partnering with the National Council for the Social Studies and the PA Council for the Social Studies. Both feel now is the time to teach the Iraq War while the sons and daughters of Iraq veterans are in middle school and high school. The first link below is our Global Awareness Map that has 905 short videos on 60 countries where the United States has a presence or strategic interest.

The second link is the Vietnam War and Iraq War Initiative. It is not a finished product. We have several teachers and departments of education in 35 states reviewing and providing a critique.

We have a webinar scheduled for March 28 through the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and their 13,000 teachers. It was the idea of the president of the NCSS to include the War in Iraq now in our initiative. Collectively we have about 80 videos on Iraq, Desert Storm and the Iraq-Iran War in our collection.

When you click the Vietnam and Iraq Wars you will see our rational for doing this now.
Then you will see our supporters.

VFW POST 3460 LATEST NEWS

​VETERANS NATIONAL EDUCTION PROGRAM.

VFW Post 3460 Annual and Life Members,

            I want to start off by addressing our Annual and Life Members. As Post 3460 heads into another year, following the VFW PA Department Convention in June, I will be setting goals for 2019-2020. I am happy to report that most of the goals we set for the present year have been achieved. The one remaining is getting more of you involved. We added over 20 members this year but once they join we see very few of them. That also goes for all our members. Where are you? The future of our post depends on you. Let’s take a look at what I am asking and come up with some solutions.

1.      We need to begin training some of you to become officers by working with us to carry on. One way is to attend our meetings and mingle with those in office now.

2.      One of the main reasons we are here is to help our fellow comrades and their families when they need it. One way is our Buddy Poppy Drives. All we ask is you give us two hours of your time to hand out Poppies and bring in donations for our Relief Fund. Right now, I am also looking for someone to run this year’s drive in the Media Area. So far no one has stepped up.

3.       Post 3460 has one of the few remaining Honor Guards in Delco. We are always in need of new members.

These are just a few of the reasons. We are a Proud Veterans Organization and need your support to do more for our comrades. We are having a  'Veterans Night' May 30th just for you. Come in and meet the officers, your fellow comrades and have some pizza and beer.

In comradeship'

Jake Knapp, Commander

To Our Members,


     WHERE ARE YOU?  I looked at the sign up sheet for our  Memorial Day Weekend Buddy Poppy Drive. It  has the fewest names on the list I have seen in my 24 years as a member of 3460, especially Post Members. This is what we are all about and you are telling me you don't care?

     Buddy Poppies are not all about raising money but we hand them out  and ask them to wear them to remind the public of the sacrifices our comrades have made for our country. It also bring's attention to their children what a Poppy is.

     You can't give two hours of your time for your fellow comrades in need. Even a free breakfast doesn't work. This year we told everyone that a portion of the donations will be going to our National Home for Children, What better cause than that.

     It's bad enough we don't have more members involved with the post and our Honor Guard. Maybe it's time we take a look at the future of 3460.



Enjoy you BBQ"s and Memorial Day Party's

Jake Knapp, Commander
