  "Thank you for your lesson plans offered regarding the role of women in the World Wars. Each year our sophomore high school students study both WWII and the book Night (Elie Wiesel). Teachers assign a research project on elements of WWII, so your lesson plans on Women’s Roles in WWII is much appreciated. We invite all legislators, readers and citizens to support the efforts to secure a home for the National Women’s History Museum."
