Veterans will gather at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan to be interviewed by volunteer lawyers regarding their wartime experiences. These oral histories will be recorded and transcribed by official court reporters, and then archived at the Library of Congress. Civilians who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (war industry workers, such as “Rosie the Riveter,” USO workers, civilian flight instructors and pilots, medical personnel, etc.) are also invited to share their valuable stories. To register for the event or for information about the project, contact Lorena Hernandez, Administrative Assistant to the Chief Judge, at 847-377-3771.
