This reminder US Senator Joe Donnelly’s office will host a Veterans History Project event from 1:30 till 3:30 tomorrow afternoon.at the Northwood Retirement Community Assisted Living Center in Jasper.
The Veterans History Project is an effort by the Library of Congress to preserve the historic experiences of those who served in the United States military by recording their personal narratives and archiving them for use by historians, teachers, and the general public.
In a release Donnelly, who serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, says the men and women who courageously served the country have moving stories to share about their service. He says it’s important their statements are recorded so that future generations have the opportunity to learn from the experiences and appreciate the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedoms.
Donnelly’s staff and other Hoosier volunteers will be present to interview veterans. Area veterans are encouraged to attend in order to have their stories recorded. Individuals in the community who would like to volunteer to interview the veterans are also welcome.
Veterans who want to share their stories and volunteers who want to interview veterans should RSVP to Donnelly’s office by contacting Jessica Griffith at Jessica_Griffith@donnelly.senate.gov or by calling 317-226-5555.
