Oral History Project Seeks Local Vietnam War Veterans
The Vietnam War Oral History project is still seeking names and contact information of local Vietnam veterans. The veterans will be contacted to see if they are interested in participating in an oral history project conducted by Southern High School students that will result in a local history publication, similar to the book produced for our local WWII and Korean War veterans in the past. These previous projects were conducted in conjunction with the Garrett Historical Society as is this one. Interviewing will be conducted this spring. Local veterans would include those who were born in GC, who grew up in GC, or who currently live here. Veterans who call Garrett County home. We are also interested in those who may want to be interviewed from the home front, for example wives, mothers of soldiers and other family members who might have a rich story to tell. Many local Vietnam veterans have been interviewed by students over the past several years resulting in a rich learning experience that goes beyond the classroom. Project coordinators Veteran Jim Glotfelty, Veteran Gene Johnson, and social studies teacher Heather Savage are seeking additional veterans and their stories. In addition, those who did not come home will be remembered in the book. Veteran Gene Johnson has worked diligently to recognize these local men in a recent publication. Anything we could add to his work, which will be included in the oral history book, would be appreciated. Please email/contact Heather Savage at email@example.com, Mr. Gene Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Jim Glotfelty at email@example.com with names and contact information.
