Veterans urged to record stories at Marquette event

MARQUETTE, MI— The office of U.S. Senator Gary Peters is collecting stories from veterans in Marquette Wednesday.

The Veterans History Project is a program from the Library of Congress American Folklife Center. It collects and preserves a national archive featuring the firsthand interviews and narratives of U.S. military veterans from World War I through the present, along with the stories of Gold Star families.

The interviews and memoirs will be submitted to the Library of Congress so future generations can learn about veterans’ stories of service and the realities of war.

The Veterans History Project takes place from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Marquette Regional History Center. A link to register is here.
