Veterans represent an often hidden resource of knowledge, leadership, and experience that should be highlighted throughout the archives community. Panelists represent a fraction of the roles that veterans play in the archives from working to capture veteran's history, providing critical knowledge for reference work, adding context to collections of military history, and technical expertise, organizational, and teamwork skills. The panelists will speak to the importance of being involved in collecting, managing, and protecting our resources.
