Community Media Center Invites Local Veterans to Share Their Stories

The Community Media Center will hold a special Veterans Oral History Collection Day on Thursday, May 23,2024 at the Community Media Center, 1301 Washington Road, Westminster, MD.

The Veterans Oral History Collection Day is an opportunity for Carroll County veterans to share their personal accounts of military service with the rest of our community. The goal of the project is to recognize our local veterans, honor them for their service and preserve their memories for future generations.

Local veterans interested in sharing their story should contact the Community Media Center to schedule an interview time. Interviews will be booked, by appointment only from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. To be included in the project, please schedule your appointment no later than May 22, 2024.

To sign up or to learn more about the project, please contact Sherry Taylor at staylor@carrollmediacenter.org or visit https://www.carrollmediacenter.org/carroll-county-history-project or call 410-386-4415.

These important personal accounts can provide powerful insights into the experiences of our local veterans. Through their stories, we can begin to see how military experiences can affect every aspect of life, regardless of whether a person served overseas or stateside, during a time of peace or conflict.

The goal of the Veterans Oral History Collection is not only to honor the courage and sacrifice of our local veterans, but also to preserve their memories as a lasting resource to help educate future generations. Their personal accounts help bring history to life, adding a context and perspective that you can’t find in a textbook.

Veterans’ interviews will be added to the Carroll County History Project’s permanent online video archive and will be broadcast on cable channels 19 and HD-1086. In November, interviews will be featured during special all-day programming in observance of Veterans Day.
