The project began as an idea that was developed during our first meeting of the Veteran's advisory group. The Veterans Advisory Group is comprised mostly of veterans living in the villages or unincorporated areas of Greenburgh. Some members are not veterans but all have a desire to assist veterans causes. A few weeks ago a women by the name of Nancy Schilro spoke before the council about the wounded warrior project. She was a Lance Corporal in the United States Marines and was wounded in Iraq. She is a true American hero and a role model for all Americans. She currently works for the wounded warrior project as a benefits consultant. This would be a wonderful real life history session taught to the children by there neighbors. Sometimes for children history doesn't seem real. However when people who helped shape some of our current history talk about their memories this can a powerful teaching tool for our young people.
