About this Event
All are invited to join us for a weeklong exhibition of research and digital work by LMU AFROTC, LMU undergraduate students, and high school students to uplift the stories of Asian Americans and African Americans interred at the LA National Cemetery.
This work is part of the Veterans Legacy Program and is funded by the National Cemetery Administration division of the Veterans Administration.
In the Fall of 2022, a team from Loyola Marymount University launched an effort to engage university and high school students in uncovering and digitally sharing the stories of Asian Americans and Buffalo Soldiers interred at the Los Angeles National Cemetery. This began the LMU Digital Veterans Legacy (DVL) Project by engaging LMU courses from several disciplines and working with St. Bernard High School. Students visited the LA National Cemetery (LANC) during these courses and researched over 120 individuals. They created biographies, videos, and flipping books from this research to tell these soldiers’ stories that we are excited to share with the public.
