The staff of U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., will host a Veterans History Project event from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, at the Pines Village Retirement Communities, 3303 Pines Village Circle in Valparaiso.

The Veterans History Project is an effort by the Library of Congress to preserve the historic experiences of those who served in the U.S. military by recording their personal narratives and archiving them for future use by historians, teachers, and the general public.

“The men and women who courageously served our country have moving stories to share about their service,” Donnelly said. “It is important that we record their statements so that future generations have the opportunity to learn from their experiences and appreciate the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedoms.”

Donnelly’s staff and other Hoosier volunteers will be present to interview veterans. Donnelly will not be present.

Area veterans are encouraged to attend in order to have their stories recorded. Individuals in the community who would like to volunteer to interview the veterans are also welcome.

Veterans who want to share their stories and volunteers who want to interview veterans should RSVP to Donnelly’s office by contacting Ryan Wiegand at or by calling (317) 226-5555.
