The FS campus community project to preserve the stories of World War II veterans will be on hold for the summer but will begin again after Aug. 22

The WW II Veterans’ History Project collects stories from veterans and civilians who served during the war. Through oral interviews, war-time correspondence and visual materials such as scrapbooks, these individuals share memories of their experiences that will be recorded in the Library of Congress Archives.

Dr. Nancy McClure, Director of the FS Foundation Center for Teaching Excellence, is spearheading the campus efforts. In the fall, campus volunteers will again be collecting names of area veterans who would be willing to be interviewed.
