About the Project
The Smithtown Library's Long Island Room is collecting personal accounts of Smithtown veterans to preserve a permanent record of their military service experience. Library staff will conduct, record and make the interviews available to the public through the Long Island Room’s website. They will also forward a copy of each interview to the Library of Congress for inclusion in their national Veterans History Project. Veterans of all ages are welcome to participate.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating in the project, please call (631)360-2480 x197 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The personal accounts of those who have chosen to share their experiences through the Long Island Room's Veterans Oral History Project encompass a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to biographical information, entrance into military service, wartime/ peacetime service experiences, separation from the military, post-service life and reflections upon the impact of serving in the U.S. military.
Thanks to all of our Veterans Oral History Project participants for your service and your willingness to share your experiences.
