Class guest Fran Liu brought boxes of memorabilia and artifacts that belonged to her father, Theodore Hudanski, who served in the U.S. Army, 728th Railway Batallion, from 1943 through 1945 in England, France and Germany. After examining items including a Camp Kilmer training manual, an aircraft recognition silhouette book, Allied and Axis pins and medals and old photos, the students used the Internet to research the significance of the items.
