CIAG is excited to announce its collaboration with ParadeRest on a project that explores community resilience and critical incident analysis though the eyes of WWII Veterans. The project, titled “Nickel for your Story,” is an effort to record the stories of all United States military veterans, starting with those from WWII, to preserve these invaluable accounts for future generations
Student interns will record the stories of local veterans in exchange for a WWII era, silver Jefferson nickel; the very coins carried in the pockets and purses of these men and women so long ago. Each account will be submitted to the Library of Congress as part of the Veterans History Project. We’re grateful for the recent media attention of the project, which was featured in Stars and Stripes, UVA Today, the Cavalier Daily, the Daily Progress.
