Star-Spangled 200 is an award-winning non-profit organization responsible for promoting Maryland as the home of the Star-Spangled Banner during the three-year War of 1812 Bicentennial. Events kicked off in June 2012 with Star-Spangled Sailabration.
Working as part of the Department of Defense Commemoration, the USAHEC will honor Vietnam Veterans in the coming years through a variety of programs, including lectures, living history events, and small exhibits. For more information about the 50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemoration, including objectives, upcoming events, and an interactive timeline, check the official website: www.vietnamwar50th.com.
The Project collects first-hand accounts of U.S. Veterans from the following wars:
- World War I (1914-1920)
- World War II (1939-1946)
- Korean War (1950-1955)
- Vietnam War (1961-1975)
- Persian Gulf War (1990-1995)
- Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts (2001-present)
In addition, those U.S. citizen civilians who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (such as war industry workers, USO workers, flight instructors, medical volunteers, etc.) are also invited to share their valuable stories.
