Resident Voices

We asked residents all over the country about the historical events that shaped their lives. 

What major historical event affected you most? Why and what do you remember about it?

The passing of the Social Security and Medicare Act. It helps the elderly and retired citizens that need extra income.

Pearl Harbor because my brother went to war and had just turned 18. He was in the Navy in the medical field.
