West Texans and the Experience of War: World War I to the Present

A three-year project at Angelo State University in West Texas to preserve and examine the experiences of America’s military veterans and their families from World War I to the present day.

A Century Apart: West Texans and America's Wars is a three year project at Angelo State University (ASU) designed to compile, preserve, share, and analyze the experiences of America's warriors and their families from World War I to the present day. The project directors and their students will examine the similarities, differences, and challenges faced by American soldiers with a connection to West Texas in those conflicts by focusing on six themes: motivation for service, public support for the conflict, familial support and challenges, experience of wartime service, interaction with and articulation of American national identity to foreigners, and challenges of returning to civilian life.
