Unity Hospice Invites Local Veterans to Participate in the Veterans History Project

Unity Hospice invites area veterans to share their story of wartime to be submitted to the Library of Congress through the Veterans History Project

Unity Hospice is inviting veterans in their surrounding communities to share their stories of wartime to be submitted to the Library of Congress through a nationally-recognized program called the Veterans History Project. One of the world’s most respected research and cultural institutions, the Library of Congress will preserve these stories for future generations so they can better understand American history and the realities of war.

Interested veterans are invited to any of Unity Hospice’s office buildings to share their personal narrative in the form of unedited video recorded interviews. All veterans are welcome to share their story, regardless of wartime service. Interviews will be conducted at the following times and Unity Hospice locations:

St. Louis, Mo. – 6406 Wise Ave: August 17-23
Collinsville, Ill. – 1604 Eastport Plaza Drive: August 24-30
Rochelle, Ill. – 1201 S. 7th Street: Sept. 28-Oct. 4
Merrillville, Ind. – 8407 Virginia Street: Oct. 26-Nov. 1
Chicago, Ill. – 700 S. Clinton Street: Nov. 2-6
Skokie, Ill. – 4101 Main Street: Nov. 9-13

Dates and times may be altered to fit your schedule if you are interested in participating in this wonderful program. Read more about the Veterans History Project on their website at www.loc.gov/vets/.

“I encourage veterans to take the opportunity to record their story of military service for the Veterans History Project through this outreach program of Unity Hospice. They will be performing another patriotic act by ensuring the account of their service and sacrifice will be preserved for the nation at the Library of Congress to instruct and inspire future generations. Congratulations to Unity Hospice for their efforts to also insure these accounts will become a valued treasure for veterans’ families.” – Bob Patrick, Director, Veterans History Project
