Oral histories and art and print projects are providing opportunities for veterans to tell their stories in ways that invite us to feel what life was like for them.
Molly Graham, Oral History Archivist for the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, Yvette Pino, U.S. Army Veteran and Founder of the Veteran Print Project, and Desert Storm Veteran Carolyn Morgan, who encourages more African/American women veterans to come forward, join together to describe how they are helping veterans tell their stories and why it is so important to capture these real life memories.
Hear their stories in this insightful program. As Yvette Pino said, "I had experienced so many more traumas in my life, and I knew that I needed to learn how to reconnect or begin new connections with non-military people. I want the conversations to continue. Until we learn to talk with one another we will have ignorant opinions about each other."
