Preserving The Stories Of Missouri Veterans
The Missouri Veterans History Project is a not-for-profit organization which seeks to capture the oral history of as many Missouri veterans as possible.
According to the group’s website, “Our nation’s veterans each have a unique perspective to share about our history. First-hand recollections of their service provide a richer and more personal context to historical accounts.”
Host Steve Potter was joined by Missouri Representative Jill Schupp, founder and chair of the Missouri Veterans History Project, Carl Mitchell, a retired business owner and volunteer interviewer, and Nancy Keyser, a volunteer interviewer and public relations coordinator for the Project.
Missouri veterans of any age, who served at any time and in any capacity are welcome to participate in the project. The stories are videotaped and preserved by the U.S. Library of Congress and the State Historical Society of Missouri.
To participate as a veteran or volunteer call (314) 616-5009 or (573) 522-4220 or e-mail info@MVHP.net
