But this is not a history class textbook. This is veterans candidly telling their stories. For many of them, this is the first time they’ve shared this with their children and grandchildren.
And we need you to continue this work.
Because you know veterans, your mission is to help record the stories of the veterans in your life. Good stories and bad, they need to be recorded and–just as importantly–we need to learn how to listen to them. The goal is not to make them into heroes (they typically will be uncomfortable with that.) It’s to provide history for future generations that will want to know.
