Back in April I mentioned that I was requested to and did an hour-long video and audio interview with a representative of The Library of Congress’s Veterans History Project. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I want any and all of our Veterans out there to know about it and have to opportunity to do one themselves.
After mine was completed I immediately signed up to be a trained Veteran’s Interviewer and have been conducting some since then. Now I want you.
In a nut shell the Library of Congress (LoC’s) website says this:
The Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
This is actually misleading as the project wants ALL veterans stories whether they served in a time of war or not. But in all honestly if you look at what the LoC is calling ‘war’ periods it encompasses all of our modern history. You do not need to have been in theater – anywhere and however you served is what they want.
Please watch this video and, if you can see through the tears, get in touch with me.
