Join us for a viewing of “More Than a Medal,” a documentary exploring the work of the Valor Medals Review Project by Park University’s George S. Robb Centre for the Study of the Great War.

The 25-minute documentary, produced by Lame Deer Films in cooperation with the Robb Centre, interweaves the efforts of the researchers working against time, untold heroic stories of courage on the battlefields of France, on the seas and in the air, and the experience of modern-day descendants as they maintain cautious hope of recognition.

The event will open with remarks by Park University’s Tim Westcott, Ph.D., director of the Robb Centre, associate professor of history, and associate archivist.
