Jefferson City – Senator Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, today announced that the Missouri Veteran Stories project will be scheduling interviews in Joplin. The state project honors Missouri veterans by capturing their stories on DVD to be preserved for future generations. Veterans’ interviews are being scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 3 at VFW Post 534 located at 110 E. Veterans Way in Joplin.

“Recording and preserving these stories gives future Missourians the opportunity to learn about this country’s history first-hand,” said Sen. Nodler. “At the same time, we are honoring our local veterans and valuing their experiences during their service. I am encouraging veterans in our area to participate and share their stories.”
The Missouri Veteran Stories project is open to all men and women currently residing in Missouri who have served in any branch of the U.S. military. Five- to seven-minute fully edited stories will be produced using interviews and conversations with each veteran. These stories will become part of the permanent Missouri Veteran Stories archive. The archive is available through www.missouriveteranstories.org and through touch-screen consoles in the State Capitol.
To set an appointment for Nov. 3 or to nominate a veteran, log on to http://www.missouriveteranstories.org or call 1-800-905-1536 for more information. For those interested in participating, interviews will be conducted in half-hour intervals throughout the day.
