Court reporters to volunteer for veterans project

Court reporters from the 8th Judicial District in Illinois will be volunteering their time for five days this year to hear stories from local veterans, as part of the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project, according to a recent article published online by the Herald-Whig. The article reports that Linda Snyder, RMR, a court reporter based at the Adams County Courthouse, said a reporter will be paired with a veteran for between 30 minutes to an hour and will take down shorthand of whatever the veteran has to say.
