In the spring of 2013, students in Dr. Lauren Rule Maxwell’s Advanced Composition class conducted oral history interviews with a diverse group of area veterans regarding their military experiences during World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam. The students incorporated the veterans’ stories into a range of writing exercises, including abstracts, feature articles, and transcriptions, which appear with the interviews online and also archived  in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project in Washington, DC.   

Norris Evans, a student in Ms. Tiffany Silverman’s Photography class and himself a veteran, took these images of the veterans with the students who interviewed them.
