This summer, at our family reunion, I recorded an interview with my grandpa about his service in WWII. I had some trouble uploading it to the StoryCorps app initially, but in honor of Veteran’s Day, I thought I would try again this morning, and it worked!
The interview is about 23 minutes long, and I’m grateful to have been able to record and share it. It’s interesting to hear the turn of events that dictated my grandpa’s time in the service. He served in the Pacific, and some of his extra training beforehand probably kept him safe — which resulted in my own life more than 40 years later!
Thank you, grandpa – and all veterans – for your service!
P.S. This is my post about my first StoryCorps interview with my grandpa. He really wanted to talk about his war experience!
Perhaps at a family Thanksgiving, you can collect stories of your own!
