Tag It Tuesday! Honoring Our Veterans
Friday marks the annual observance of Veterans Day, a day on which we honor the millions of brave men and women who have served in the Armed Forces. This Tag It Tuesday, in tribute to our military veterans, we’re asking you to tag records in the Online Public Access (OPA) that relate to veterans and the military. Help us tag our veteran-related records all week long.
On this day 141 years ago, the forerunner of today’s National Weather Service – the Signal Service Corps’ Division of Telegrams and Reports for the Benefit of Commerce – made its first meteorological observations and reports and the weather hasn’t been the same since.
“Weather” you like singing in the rain, chasing storms, or checking the daily barometric pressure, the National Archives has weather records for you. This Tag It Tuesday we invite you to join us for a flurry of tagging our weather related records in honor of those first weather reporters.
We forecast that you’ll have a great time tagging our weather related records. Here are a few images from our holdings to get you started!
