Mind-boggling stat: The Library of Congress has almost 90,000 veterans’ histories in its collections — priceless stories of heroism, accomplishment, and sacrifice.
Fact: They need to be transcribed. Who better to do this than court reporters? We’ve done over 3,200 already!
New goal: 300 more by Veterans Day 2014
What you can do: Transcribe a recorded history, conduct an interview and transcribe the story, or host a VHP Day.
Why?: Earn free PDCs, experience a vet’s story firsthand, feel humbled and gratified, and help preserve America’s history.
