96 | Veterans and Archaeology: Digging into Our Nation’s History with Jessica Mundt, Kelly Brown, and Shannon Johnson

The Veterans Curation Program hires veterans to curate and maintain archeological collections that preserve America’s history and endow participants with employable skills for the ever-changing civilian job market. 

This wonderful trio of educational leaders —Kelly Brown, Shannon Johnson, and Jessica Mundt — is on the ground, literally making history with those who have served. We discuss the ins-and-outs of this unusual program that connects the military to location and place through an archaeological lens, their current collections, and visions for the future. 

We unbox:

  • Connections between the military and archeology 
  • Inside their unique training process  
  • Current projects and future objectives
