“Every Veteran Has A Story To Tell”
November 11, 2011 – September 2012
The VLB Voices of VeteransTM program was created to capture oral histories of Texas veterans from all eras of combat, World War II to Afghanistan. Free to any Texas veteran, the Voices of Veterans program provides a lasting legacy for historians, friends and family members, and helps us honor and remember the sacrifices of all Texas veterans.
The mission of the Voices of VeteransTM program is to remind future Texans that ordinary men and women, when faced with overwhelming adversity, can accomplish extraordinary things.
Beginning Veteran’s Day, November 11th, 2011 (11.11.11) , the Voices of VeteransTM oral history program be highlighted in a new yearlong multimedia exhibit at the Capitol Visitor’s Center in the historic Old Land Office on the Capitol grounds.
Entitled “Every Veteran Has A Story To Tell,” the exhibit will feature a short video on the program, multimedia iPad kiosks with actual selections from the veterans’ interviews from the program, as well as personal memorabilia. The exhibit runs through September 2012.
The "Every Veteran has a Story to Tell" exhibit was made possible by the State Preservation Board and the Texas Capitol Visitor Center.
