Illinois DAV Collects Veterans' Stories
The DAV Department of Illinois and the Illinois Court Reporters Association teamed up in September to collect the oral histories of veterans. Their stories—about a dozen in all—will become part of the Library of Congress Veterans History Project’s permanent collection.
The DAV Charitable Service Trust awarded a grant to the National Court Reporters Association to collect the oral histories of DAV members across the country. The goal of this partnership is to assist the Veterans History Project in its mission to collect and preserve the oral histories of American wartime veterans and the civilians who served in their support.
