The Veterans History Project
Congressman Steve Israel, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone invite you to take part in the Veterans History Project. The Veterans History Project was established by the Library of Congress to collect and preserve personal stories and other documents from American war veterans. This project plays an active role in documenting our history by bringing together members of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from across Long Island with Long Island’s war heroes through facilitating interviews that will be recorded.
There are three parts of the project that we ask for your participation in:
A training from the NY Historical Society
October 12, 2013 at the Hicksville Public Library’s Computer and Resource Center
PLACE: 101 Jerusalem Avenue, Hicksville
A 30-minute interview session with a veteran
November 2, 2013 at the Huntington Station VFW Post #1469
PLACE: 210 West Pulaski Road, Huntington Station
