Breaking Ground and Boundaries: Veteran Changemakers

In early 2019, the Library of Congress launched a year-long initiative inviting visitors to explore America’s changemakers through a series of exhibitions, events, and programs. Here, the Veterans History Project explores the stories of military changemakers: veterans who broke new ground and boundaries, on and off the battlefield. In addition to honorably serving their country, these men and women challenged the status quo and struggled against oppression, injustice, and society’s expectations. Many of them won citations, high ranks, or the title of “first,” but more importantly, their accomplishments forged new ground for future generations.
