Why Rancho Remembers?
Vietnam Vet talks with Rancho Cucamonga junior about his service as a Patriot Guard Rider.
Rancho Remembers was a simple idea started 10 years ago with the goal of bringing living history to the students of Rancho Cucamonga High School. The initial year was a humble start with 34 Veterans in attendance and 91 students participating. Through the years, the program has grown and developed into an event that inspires, educates, and puts much of American history in perspective - you begin to realize freedom isn’t free. Last year 295 Veterans participated and over 900 students had the opportunity to live and see history face to face.
The past 11 years has allowed over 2,100 Veterans to walk the halls of RCHS and share their to nearly 5,000 students.
