Emory Frost helped rebuild Germany after the War's devastation left it in shabbles. In all, twenty senior citizens from McPherson County, Kansas, wrote books about their experiences during World War II. Some are veterans, some were factory workers, some described the home-front. Middle school students provided computer support for this one-of-a-kind project about US 1940s history. Meeting weekly from January, 2011 through April, the group combed attics and dresser drawers and the internet for photographs and newspaper articles. Middle schoolers scanned images and formatted text until the books were complete for the publisher. Twenty individual hardbound books took center stage for a standing-room-only reception audience in May. Requests to buy books prompted project coordinator Ann Parr and tech director Marla Elmquist to publish all twenty stories in one volume, Stories of World War II.

Bob Dole adds his support to this group's efforts by saying, I believe future generations will learn from your work. Pairing veterans' historical accounts with students' natural curiostiy is a wonderful concept--fostering a learning experience for everyone involved.
