I have the utmost
respect for our veterans of all wars, and for the spouses and families who
supported them on the "home front." Our response to threats to our
freedom is a wonderful example of how Americans can come together and protect
not just this country, but also virtually the whole world. In the past I
participated in veteran interviews for the "Lest We Forget" project,
wherein thousands of stories were sent to Washington for historical
preservation. I am very proud and honored to have had the opportunity to talk
to these men, and I have heard some very interesting personal stories - the
kind of things you don't read about in the history books about the war.
stories from all around the country, along with suggestions for interviewing
and recording interviews of your own, please see the Library of Congress
Veteran's History Project website at: http://www.loc.gov/vets/.
And after all our
trips out West, "America The Beautiful" doesn't seem like a good
enough description for the stunning, magnificent landscapes of America's
"Big Sky Country!"
