Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has joined forces with the U.S. Library of Congress to encourage Arkansans participation in the Veterans History Project, which creates an audio and video archive with recordings of firsthand accounts from American wartime veterans.
“Over 250,000 veterans call Arkansas home. It is critical that we capture and preserve the memories of our Arkansas wartime veterans so that future generations can honor them and learn about our nation’s proud history directly from those who lived through the events.”
If you or someone you know is a wartime veteran and would like to participate in this project, contact Tim Johnson, Senior Representative of Military and Veterans Affairs, by emailing at Tim.Johnson@ArkansasAG.gov or calling (501) 682-2007.
Additionally, Resident Press sponsors a veteran spotlight, through a monthly feature and we would like to honor both war and peace time veterans. If you are a veteran or would like us to feature someone who is, please contact us!
