Veterans: Make Sure That Your Story Is Known

Over the weekend, contributor, Kimberly Largent-Christopher let me know about a wonderful opportunity for our veterans.  Here is her announcement.

To all U.S. Army veterans: the U.S. Army War College’s Military History Institute (now called Army Heritage Education Center), is currently collecting “stories” from veterans who served during the following: WWII, The Korean War, The Cold War Era, The Vietnam War, and The Post-Cold War Era. That means all veterans, from privates to generals, who served during those times have the opportunity to tell their stories, in order to help historians, researchers, and the next generation learn from our history. The questionnaires are available online at If you have trouble completing the form, there is a number to call. The form can be filled out online and submitted, or printed out, answers handwritten and the form mailed back. Finally, this is a wonderful opportunity for army veterans to have their stories archived for their descendents to access./VEC/historical.cfm

About Michael Noirot

I grew up in the Central Illinois farming community, of Dunlap. Growing up, I played sports, tinkered with cars and enjoyed photography. While I did well in school, I did not become passionate about history until my early 30's. I have built a large library, of books on early America, politics and the Civil War. I am an avid reader. Fortunately, I have had plenty of opportunities to travel, over the years, and have been to most of the Civil War battlefields. I work while I travel, so more often than not, I am up, in the middle of the night, to get sunrise pictures, or I will be out until well after dark, exploring Civil War battlefields. I have other hobbies, and passions, that I really enjoy. Number one on the list would be guitar. I play my guitars on a regular basis, and enjoy the Bluegrass, and Contemporary Christian (CCM) genres. I play a style of guitar, called FLATPICKING, where using a flat pick, you play lead solos, similar to the way a fiddle would have been played during the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Laura, my wife, and I also enjoy scuba diving, travel and spending time at our property, in the country. Lastly, we spend as much time with our families, as possible. Thanks for stopping by.
