Lake County Records Veterans Stories for National Project
Court reporters collect stories of 14 Lake County combat war veterans.
- November 11, 2012
The stories of 14 combat war veterans from Lake County will soon be part of the Library of Congress' Veterans History Project.
See the video on the veteran's project.
The project collects first-hand accounts of veterans, as well as collecting personal items such as copies of diaries and letters.
Official court reporters from the 19th Judicial Circuit produced transcripts of the interviews conducted on Oct. 26, and their stories will be archived at the Library of Congress.
In this video, multiple World War II veterans discuss the significance of the project and give details of their experience in the war.
