Unity Hospice of Western Illinois invites veterans to share their story of wartime to be submitted to the Library of Congress through the Veterans History Project.
Unity Hospice of Western Illinois is inviting veterans in the Western Illinois suburbs to share their stories of wartime to be submitted to the Library of Congress through a nationally-recognized program called the Veterans History Project. One of the world’s most respected research and cultural institutions, the Library of Congress will preserve these stories for future generations so they can better understand American history and the realities of war.
Interested veterans are invited to contact Unity Hospice to schedule an appointment to share their personal stories in the form of unedited video recorded interviews. Interviews will be conducted during the week of September 28 – October 2, 2015. Read more about the Veterans History Project on their website at http://www.loc.gov/vets/.
For more information about the Veterans History Project in your community or to schedule a time to share your story, please contact Unity Hospice Director of Program Development Brenda McGarvey at (618) 954-6114 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
