[ARCHIVED] Veterans Are Invited to Be Interviewed For 2019 Veterans History Project

Are you a veteran? Share your story! Veterans who served in any capacity from WWII to the present, as well as people who worked as civilian defense workers supporting war efforts, are invited to register to participate in the Veterans History Project on Monday, Nov. 11 at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan.

Volunteers from the Lake County legal community will interview participants about their wartime experiences, and court reporters will produce verbatim transcriptions that will then be archived in the Library of Congress. Once archived, these first-hand accounts of American war veterans will be accessible online to serve as both an inspiration for generations to come, and to be available for use by researchers so that Americans can better understand the realities of war. A copy will also be provided to the veteran.

Space is limited to 28 veterans, and breakfast and other refreshments will be provided. Registration is required. If you are interested in participating, please contact Brian McClain at (847) 377-3733 or [email protected].
