U.S. Army cinema van visits Cape Henlopen High By Kristen Seal Cape Henlopen High School students were offered a different approach to learning U.S. History with the visit of the U.S. Army Cinema Van on Thursday, April 6. Slide presentations the U.S. Army offers include military history, government, communications, math and science and nursing pro- grams. Cape's history classes viewed either "We the People" or "The Day of Infamy" slide shows, depending upon the relevant sub- ject matter currently being taught in the classroom. The Cinema Van, which is actu- ally a traveling tractor trailer, accommodates 40 people and houses nine projectors and three screens. All power needed for the projectors and sound is generated from the cab of the vehicle. According to Sgt. First Class Barney Pinckney, "we travel across the country to different high schools, vocational and tech- nical schools and junior colleges when a local field recruiter sub- mits a request for the presentation. The main topic of our visits are to stay in school and to stay off of drugs." Sgt. First Class Kenneth Dooley is the U.S. Army field recruiter from the U.S. Army Recruiting Station in Seaford who requested the cinema van visit several Delaware high schools. Joten ,e! photo Sgt First Class Barney Pinckney leads the discussion during the U.S. Army Cinema Van pre- sentation at Cape Heniopen High School on Thursday, April & "We work with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, JROTC programs and the schools to accommodate the presentation. We hope to do these presentations annually and let students know of the large numbers of jobs we offer and the amount of scholarship money available," says Dooley. "These shows really illustrate the positive and negative effects of war on history and how our soci- ety today still benefits from tech- nology developed during war time," says Cpl. Ronald Erale with the JROTC program at Cape. "It was definitely educational - the show actually reinforced everything we have been learning in the classroom. I really liked it," adds junior Doug Parke. Sue Lore, history teacher at CHHS, feels the Army Cinema Van's visit to Cape made an impact on her history students. "Basically all of the history classes are just finishing the World War II unit, so 'The Day of Infamy' visually reviewed all that the students have been learning about. 'We the People' also was a nice overview of the effect of the military on history." The U.S. Army Cinema Van will visit Dover High School after its one day visit at Cape.
