Iowa Community College to Host Veterans History Project

They have put their lives on the line to protect America's freedom – and the search is now on for veterans in Iowa who have stories to share as part of the country's rich narrative.

Professor Patti Ziegler says the Newton Campus of Des Moines Area Community College will host the Veterans History Project in November, as 15 vets will be interviewed and members of the Iowa Court Reporters Association will transcribe their stories for archiving.

Ziegler says those local veterans who step up to tell their tales will receive a copy of their transcripts, as will the Library of Congress.

Veterans interested in taking part in the project this fall should contact the Newton campus of DMACC.

All will be considered, although preference will be given to those who served in World War II.
