Heroes tell their stories

Posted on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 8:21 am

Last week local veterans began to tell their story of “service to their country” as the Missouri Veterans History Project got underway. Above, volunteer Dan Busekrus (left) begins to interview George Roberts (right), a veteran of World War II. Local volunteers attended a training session; the interviews with the veterans began Thursday. Walter Scheffing and Roberts were the first two veterans.  Interviews and DVDs of the veterans will continue weekly with copies available to the Library of Congress, Missouri State Historical Society, the veteran and to Powell Library. If anyone would like to volunteer to film or record, contact Roger Kiesey at 314-369-7747.
