On this Veteran’s Day observed, we want to tell you about a local effort to preserve the experiences of war veterans.

It’s part of a nationwide program set up by the Library of Congress called the Veteran’s History Project.

The federal program, which began in 2000, has collected 85,00 oral histories.  For the first time, an entire courthouse, with the help of its employees,  set aside one day to welcome about a dozen World War Two veterans and record their experiences.

WGN’s Jackie Bange has the story.
