Veterans Invited To Share Their Stories For National Project

INDIANAPOLIS – Veterans can have their stories memorialized as part of the Veterans History Project during an event Aug. 25 in Fishers.

U.S.Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., who serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, will host the program from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Hamilton East Public Library.

The Veterans History Project is an effort by the Library of Congress to preserve the historic experiences of those who served in the military by recording their personal narratives.

“The men and women who courageously served our country have moving stories to share about their service,” Donnelly said in a statement.  “It is important that we record their statements so that future generations have the opportunity to learn from the experiences and sacrifices they have made to protect our freedoms.”

Donnelly’s staff and other Hoosier volunteers will be present to interview veterans. Individuals in the community who would like to volunteer to interview the veterans are also welcome.

Veterans who want to share their stories and volunteers who want to conduct interviews should RSVP to Donnelly’s office by contacting Shannon Blevins by email at Shannon_Blevins@donnelly.senate.gov or by calling 317-226-5555.
