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.
