StoryCorps Invites Service Members to Record Their Stories
KNKX and StoryCorps’ Military Voices Initiative encourage you to ask an active duty service member or military veteran in your life to share their memories with you through an online storytelling experience.
StoryCorps will be recording a second round of regional military voices September 14-16, 2021. Book your virtual recording appointment HERE. You’re also invited to a virtual StoryCorps MVIlistening event on September 7 at 4 p.m. PT which highlights stories recorded virtually earlier this year in Washington State; Austin, Texas; and Columbia, South Carolina. The event will be streamed viaZoom.
StoryCorps is an organization that preserves people's stories for future generations. The Military Voices Initiative provides a platform for veterans, service members, and military families to share their stories. In doing so, StoryCorps honors their voices, amplifies their experiences, and lets them know that we—as a nation—are listening. Millions of men and women currently serve and have served in the military, and millions of families have stood behind them at home. The military community knows well the challenges of multiple deployments, combat-injuries, and long-awaited homecomings. Yet few civilians truly understand the complex realities of our troops’ service and sacrifice.
The StoryCorps Military Voices Initiative is made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
