World War II – Memorial Project Created by John Nitcy, Business Teacher Sandpoint, High School – Sandpoint Idaho The purpose of this Powerpoint Project is to help the current generation appreciate the sacrifices of the greatest generation, abroad and at home during World War II. This collection of the slides and hyperlinks, will hopefully be interesting enough to generate student interest in the most significant event of the 20 th century, WWII. As a fellow teacher in the public school system, feel free to use this material in any way possible. It is extremely important that none of us forget what the WWII generation did for the world; and also in our daily lives here in the United States. This project is still a work in progress.
