One man’s story started this entire project. In 1998, Coram resident and WWII veteran Jim Eagle told a group of Longwood students about how he survived the attack on Pearl Harbor. That single tale sparked a renewed interest in local, living history here in Longwood. Our kids and then our community soon realized that every veteran has an important story to tell, and that every veteran deserves to be recognized.
