DoDEA has partnered with the American Overseas Schools Historical Society (AOSHS), a non-profit organization based in Wichita, Kansas, to collect, record, preserve, and exhibit historical school memorabilia.
The preservation of DoDEA’s history is a legacy for future generations. For the millions of Americans who were educated overseas and in DoD schools stateside since 1946, pieces of history could disappear forever – yearbooks, trophies, letter jackets, class pictures, time capsules, school flags and mascots. As schools close down, those artifacts and memorabilia go away too.
DoDEA’s partnership with AOSHS endeavors to keep the memories alive.
