A segment aired on the station on Feb. 18. The Hard-of-Hearing Heroes Project, supported by an Innovation Grant from the ASAE Foundation, seeks to preserve the stories of America’s war veterans with hearing loss using CART captioning. The Hard-of-Hearing Heroes Project is an offshoot of NCRF’s continued work with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project (VHP). NCRF will use grant funds to host Hard-of-Hearing Heroes VHP Days across the nation.
