HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - StoryCorps is visiting Still Serving Veterans today and tomorrow to record the stories of veterans. All veterans are welcome, but this is specifically for post 9/11 veterans and their families' stories of deployment.
StoryCorps will be at Still Serving Veterans until 4 p.m. today and again tomorrow, Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are interested in telling your story and in helping preserve this crucial period of history, contact Leslee at 256-883-7035, ext 113 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is through a program called The Military Voice Initiative. The recording will be like a conversation and will be preserved in the Library of Congress. You can bring a friend or relative and tell the story to them.
Here are some examples of past interviews with service members:
- Sergeant Marilyn Gonzalez and her daughter, Specialist Jessica Pedraza, remember deploying together to Iraq in 2010
- First Lieutenant Thomas Nelson and his wife, Lauren, talk about their first year of marriage
- Sergeant Papsy Lemus tells her daughter Griselda about going off to war in Iraq
