More help for remembering vets

Dear Editor,

I appreciated your column, "Points Between," in the Aug. 18, 2005, issue of The McDuffie Mirror.

I was glad to read your words, "Take the time to lend an ear to an old soldier. And when they are done sharing their experiences, thank them for their service and shake their hand." Yes, our American freedom is seldom appreciated.

Do your readers know about:

The Veterans History Project
American Folklife Center
Library of Congress
101 Independence Ave., SE
Washington, DC 20540-4615
Phone 202-707-4916
Fax 202-252-2046
Web site: www.loc.gov/folklife/vets/
Message line: 1-888-371-5848
E-mail: vohp@loc.gov

You may phone 1-888-371-5848. They have caller I.D and a voice will say, we have your name. Give your address and we will mail you a Project Instruction Kit. The kit tells exactly how to place the experiences of the veteran on file at the Library of Congress. This can be done by the veteran or a member of the family.

In the future, members of the family will be pleased to know that the record of services of their family member to keep this country free will be on file with the Library of Congress.
