LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT
 
 
Post Member and trained archivist Tom Pullin has come up with a great suggestion for preserving the stories and faces of our veterans.  If you would be interested in having your picture and an oral history of your service appear in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, please consider registering for an interview to be held on Tuesday evenings at the Post between the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. each week.
 
 
 
To register, please contact Tom Pullin (334-782-6582, pullin.thomas@gmail.com) or Fred Bumgarner (410-610-5404, bumgarnf@comcast.net). 
 
 
 
The Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center (commonly known as the Veterans History Project) was created by the United States Congress in 2000 to collect and preserve the firsthand remembrances of U.S. wartime veterans. Its mandate ensures future generations may hear directly from those who served to better understand the realities of war. It is a special project of the American Folklife Center, a research center of the Library of Congress.
 
The program is conducted through Congressional offices and relies on a national network of veteran service organizations, universities, secondary schools, community groups and the general public to record interviews according to program guidelines. These and original letters, diaries, photos, memoirs and historic documents related to a veteran's wartime service are then preserved at the Library of Congress. Through 2010 the project held more than 65,000 collections and was considered the largest oral history program of its kind in the nation. It serves as an important resource for scholars, historians, students and the general public.   (Wikipedia)
