Ladies Auxiliary looking for memories from local veterans
Placeholder Image
Remember when? Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign War Post 5064 wants to make sure generations to come never forget the sacrifices made by local individuals.“We are making a history book of memories of our veterans and we really need you,” said Ladies Auxiliary president Phyllis Barnes. “You are a hero in our eyes and most certainly in the eyes of your grandchildren.”Individual accounts will be recorded by Barnes.“I know some veterans don’t like to talk about their war stories, but they may have children or grandchildren who would like to know what they did and what they saw when they were fighting for our country,” said Barnes.Along with veterans who would rather forget the war they fought, the project has another hurdle that increases its importance — the passage of time.
