The Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation
The goal of the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is to share with the public the phenomenal stories and linkages of the conflicts of the 20th and 21st Centuries and to generate respect for all veterans and active duty military personnel. The stories of World War I will show how it lead inevitably to World War II, the largest and most significant war in the history of mankind. The subsequent wars in Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan signigicance are also honored.
Through static and interactive experiences in the future Musuem and events throught the year we impart the important lessons and societal progressions that came from each deadly episode. Medical and technological advances between the wars will be part of the message. A leading example is the post WWII developments of the GI Bill which allowed Veterans to go to college, buy homes and create new communities and businesses all over the United States. The necessary advancement of women and minorities in the workforce, in the military and in society will be shown.
