As a companion research project to the book The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, students in our English III AP classes each research a person whose name appears on the Vietnam wall. Students then create a presentation honoring the individual's life and the time in which they lived.
This has been an ongoing project of the English III AP classes at Westlake for several years. To date there are over 1800 videos housed on this website honoring the servicemen and women who gave their lives in Vietnam. If you know someone whom you would like to see honored, please click the Contacts page and email one of the instructors or support staff there. We will make every effort to include them in the next year's group of honorees. The projects are started near the first of February and are online by mid-August of the same year. If you find errors, please contact the webmaster or one of the classroom teachers, and we will make every effort possible to correct those errors. Thank you for your support of our students.
We are part of the Westlake High School campus in the Eanes Independent School District. Our campus is located in Austin, Texas. Visit our website at http://www.whschaps.com.
