Welcome to U.S. Veterans Legacy Project

The mission of Veteran’s Legacy is to provide a platform for our veterans to pass on their legacy to younger generations. In doing this, we hope that students will learn, through first-hand veteran accounts, what it was like to serve our great country.

One of our objectives is to film and produce video interviews of all veterans living in Delaware County. Additionally, each year, we host the Memorial Day & Veterans Day parades in Media, PA, as well as a Patriotic Concert, Flag Exchange ceremony, and Essay Contest.
