ALLVETS, a nonprofit group with a goal of preserving the stories of local veterans, invites veterans and the public to join them at their monthly recording meetings, held at 7 p.m. the fourth Wednesday of each month, January through October, at the York History Center, 250 E. Market St., York.
ALLVETS is a small group trying to save the stories of military veterans by recording their presentations of their personal narratives. This recording, done free of charge, creates a legacy not only for the veteran’s family, but also for future generations.
All veterans, both combat and non-combat, are welcome to share their stories.
Recording sessions are approximately one hour, and veterans may preregister at no cost. Presenting veterans are encouraged to bring along personal items. All recordings are open to the public.
Each veteran’s story is recorded with two cameras, and the veteran receives a copy of the recording on DVD. The York History Center also receives two copies to keep on file for their records.
Each recording event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served afterward.
