How 1 military veteran teaches his students about Memorial Day
from PBS NewsHour
Memorial Day is a federal holiday that honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. After graduating from West Point in 2002 and serving more than five years on active duty as a field artillery officer, Demetrius Ball decided to teach. Ball is now a high school social studies teacher in Maryland's Howard County Public School System. He hopes that by sharing a little about what life was like in the military, his students might further understand the meaning of Memorial Day.
