This is a nation-wide project whose purpose is to record the memories of US veterans who served in all branches of the Armed Forces. Once recorded and transcribed, these interviews will be preserved for all time in the Library of Congress. Patrons may view the images and transcripts and listen to the audio recordings using the Library’s public access computers. The images and text may be copied and printed. View the Library of Congress
While working on the Flagler Memories Project it became apparent that many County residents were veteran’s with stories to tell concerning their military service. Some of these veterans are long-time County residents, many more moved to the area in their retirement years. Together they have formed several military service organizations that actively serve the community. Their interest in military history has been a force for building the Library’s extensive collection of materials, particularly those relating to World War II.
If you are a veteran and would like to record your story or would like to recommend a veteran for the Project contact the library for more information at (386) 446-6763.
