The goal of the Virginia WWII Heritage Alliance Teacher Fellowship is to support teacher professional development, facilitate the creation of World War II education materials, and encourage a creative dialogue on history pedagogy, while strengthening ties between Virginia’s World War II museums and Virginia teachers.
Wherever American forces went during World War II, Kilroy was there. Sailors found him scrawled on the bulkheads of newly commissioned ships. When soldiers landed on Pacific Islands for the first time, they discovered Kilroy waiting for them. Platoons spotted him chalked on the rubble of bombed-out cities. Starting today, you can find him all over Virginia!
