History Documented

There was a great article in the Toledo Free Press about a new site called History Documented

Toledo-area war veterans no longer need to let textbooks tell their stories. Instead, residents and students can hear and see their narratives and learn from their experiences.

Late in 2007, Toledo natives Chris Wulf and Rick Neeley discovered their shared passion for history and began asking area war veterans to convey their stories. They founded History Documented, and gave local veterans the opportunity to document their war experiences."

How cool is this? As a teen I learned to play euchre by going with my dad to the local legion hall and playing cards with his pals. Often they'd talk about their time in the service. This would be the Korea era. Now very few of thes guys are still alive, and the ones that are are in their 80's.

What a great way to remember them and their stories!

Very cool website, thanks for posting it.

And of course, thanks to those veterans who we owe so much.

I hope the site expands coverage to include stories from our Men and Women returning home from Iraq.

Hi this is Chris the founder of History Documented.
If you had a chance to view the website, we are willing to interview anyone, from any war or conflict at anytime time period.

It is just a matter of who is interested in being interviewed. We only can interview those who ask to be interviewed. I have asked a few recent vets to interview, but unfortunately none of them wanted to, or i just received no reply.

Our goal is not to leave anyone out. There also is only 2 of us, and we are doing this in our free time. We are not yet funded to do it all day.

If anyone would like to help, or may be interested in being interviewed please contact me at Chris@historydocumented.com

Thanks for reading, and all the support.

Chris
