DL-Online – Sen. Franken launches project to record MN veterans’ memories

On Military Appreciation Day at the Minnesota State Fair, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced a new initiative to recruit Minnesota war veterans to take part in the national “Veterans History Project” to collect and preserve their personal accounts so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
