The Army Heritage Center Foundation and Humana MarketPOINT are partnering on September 19 to provide veterans from our community the opportunity to share their stories with middle school students.  The “Walk with a Vet” program, now in its third year, gives the students the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the veterans’ contributions in an informal, non-classroom setting. 

The Walk with a Vet program, made possible by a $5,000 sponsorship from Humana, also provides an opportunity for local middle school students to view the exhibits at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center.  The veterans and students will tour the Center in small groups and get to know each other over the course of the day.  This format encourages interaction between the groups and teaches students about the various aspects of the veterans’ service to the nation and the importance of preserving the veterans’ stories.   

The event will also mark National POW/MIA Day and will conclude with a brief program and ceremony to mark this special day of remembrance.  Mr. Bill Dangro, a veteran of the Korean War who spent nearly 3 years as a prisoner of North Korea, will speak to the students about his experiences.

“Humana has a tremendous commitment to veterans and students,” says Army Heritage Center Foundation Education Director Jeff Hawks. “This program was their idea.  They approached the Foundation looking for a way to bring students and veterans together, and this program is the result.  We are thrilled to have a community partner like Humana.”

Veterans interested in participating, or anyone seeking information, should contact Jeff Hawks at the Army Heritage Center Foundation at 717-258-1102 or eddirector@armyheritage.org.

The Army Heritage Center Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Carlisle, PA.  The Foundation is the “friends group” for the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, a museum, research center, and educational complex dedicated to honoring the American Soldier. 

Humana MarketPOINT is one of the largest private insurance companies that provide, along with other products, Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Part D prescription drug plans.  Humana works to improve healthcare and make it more accessible to members to make a positive impact on the communities Humana serves.
