MGC SEEKS VIETNAM VETS TO PARTICIPATE IN “VIETNAM WAR ORAL HISTORY PROJECT”
(Cochran, GA)- Are you a Vietnam War veteran? MGC would like to record your story and preserve it for generations to come! Roberts Memorial Library at Middle Georgia College is looking for Vietnam veterans from Bleckley, Pulaski, Dodge, Laurens and other surrounding counties to participate in a Vietnam War Oral History Project. The interviews will be recorded at Roberts Memorial Library on the Cochran campus, and archived in the Library’s Special Collections. Both the print and audio versions of the interview will be made available on the college website. All participants will receive a print copy of the interview.
This oral history project is part of the “Big Read” initiative, which will take place in April, 2012. The “Big Read,” a community and MGC campus collaboration, will focus on the book The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, a powerful novel relating the war experiences of one platoon during the Vietnam War and the things the men carried, both tangible and intangible. If you are interested in participating in the Vietnam Veteran’s Oral History Project, please contact MGC Librarian Judy Ellis at 934-3179 or email@example.com.
