The Mesa County “Veterans Remember” Project


November 12, 2014

Grand Junction, Colorado

Professionals working with the Mesa County (Colorado) Library District have embarked on a quest to collect and preserve oral-histories provided by local veterans. The initial phase of the “Veterans Remember Project” is a collection of stories and memories from World War II, with those from Korea and Vietnam to follow. The project was introduced to the public on Veterans Day, 2014 at a local Chick-fil-a where veterans and their families commemorated World War II and previewed the first videos.

Included in this post are photographs from that preview event, as well as the first video oral-history in the initial phase of the Veterans Remember Project of Mesa County.
