Friday is the 70th anniversary of the momentous D-Day Normandy landings and to commemorate, we are launching two initiatives: a #hangoutonair  with D-Day veterans at 6 p.m. Central Europe time http://goo.gl/uNNPvr
and 5 new online exhibitions from the Caen War Memorial, +Imperial War Museums, +Bletchley Park, the George C Marshall Research Foundation and the US National Archives. 

Take some time to browse some previously unshown video footage of the landing (http://goo.gl/AZPEV3), letters from soldiers (http://goo.gl/0ue1xS), the original assault plan (http://goo.gl/Kfk6fz) and more: http://goo.gl/5xtWHM #WWII #DDay   #ddayhangout

The April SMB Syracuse program focuses on social media and veterans: how various social platforms are used by: veterans and their families, the organizations that serve them and the member organizations to which they belong.
 
The discussion will focus on best practices and the benefits and limitations of social media communications for these audiences.
 
Participants are professionals experienced in government agency usage of social media and private firms/community organizations engaged in publicity and marketing to veterans and transitioning military members:

• Lauren Jenkins is vice president of ScoutComms, focused on advocacy, non-profit programs, social media and media relations; previously she was national coordinator for the Education for Peace in Iraq Center (EPIC), a veteran-led and founded non-profit working on youth development in Iraq.
• Aubrey Arcangel is social media manager for +Hirepurpose, an online career and staffing company that helps military families and their spouses transition into civilian life and discover great careers; a U.S. Army veteran, he was deployed to Iraq from 2005-06 as an Army specialist team leader in networking operations.
 
Moderator is +James Schmeling, managing director and co-founder of the +Institute for Veterans and Military Families at +Syracuse University  and a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

Take a look at the great work our partners at +Google have done with their +Google Cultural Institute. Partnering with museums and archives in the U.S., U.K., and France to tell the story of #DDay  to a new generation.

This is the first time that these incredible artifacts have been displayed together in one place in a way that is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. 

In honor of our veterans, please look at this great collection.
