Veteran Interviews

The Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County has a special military section in its "Athens" Gallery that you should examine on your next visit. The museum is a wonderful resource now open year-round, Wednesday through Saturday, 10am-5pm. Admission is always free. Check out their website at: www.cdpl.lib.in.us/services/carnegie

The museum is also offering more content than just what you see in its display areas, however. For example, thanks to an LSTA grant, we have digitized numerous interviews of local veterans and made them available on the web. We have 16 audio interviews of WWII vets you can reach directly. We also have 90 video interviews of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam vets that were recorded in the mid-1990s. This is the first time that all this material has been accessible to the general public, so be sure to take advantage of it in honor of our vets!
