LAKE MINNETONKA CAR PARTICIPATES IN LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT

June 9, 2019

In honor of Veteran’s Day, Lake Minnetonka C.A.R. President Angus Muldoon participated in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project by interviewing a Marine who served in Vietnam.

The Veterans History Project collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. Recordings of the interviews across the country will be archived for posterity.

We are so grateful for the service and sacrifice of our Veterans, and so glad their stories will be preserved for future generations.


And of course, thank you to the Lake Minnetonka DAR for organizing these interviews!!
