Iowa veterans of WW I and II, Vietnam, Korea, the Persian Gulf and Iraq and Afghanistan are being encouraged to participate in an event designed to document their front-line stories.
Approximately 265,000 war veterans live in Iowa and representatives of the Veterans History Project hope some veterans will come forward on Veterans Day and share their experiences. Court reporters are volunteering their services at the AIB College of Business to assist with the project which is administered through the Library of Congress. Once recorded, transcripts of the veterans’ stories will be archived in the Library.
