""Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism. You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country. "
"I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier. You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted. Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf. It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".
"Ask NOT what your country can do for you, rather what you can do for your country.
...we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.

Message: The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History at UConn will conduct a free Archaeology Field School for Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel on Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27, 9 am to 3 pm each day. State Archaeologist Dr. Brian Jones will lead the field school, which will take place in Windsor, CT.
Veterans and active duty military personnel will spend a week doing hands-on archaeology at an Archaeology Field School sponsored by the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Office of State Archaeology. The field school will cover the basics of field methods, paperwork, data management, and artifact identification. Learning proper archaeological methods will develop the participantÃ¢?Ts understanding of the ethical aspects of archaeology and the archaeologistÃ¢?Ts responsibility to preserve the data they retrieve so that it will remain valuable to future researchers.
Participants of this program will have the opportunity to experience an official Connecticut Office of State Archaeology dig at a historic site in Windsor, Connecticut. Space is limited. To request a registration form please contact David Colberg at firstname.lastname@example.org 860.486.5690.
We have been doing field schools for educators and the general public, so we decided to add one for veterans and active duty military personnel. If this seem to be something you can share with the veterans you work with, please feel free to forward.
