Honoring veterans now and for the future
The University of Florida’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program will commemorate veterans in Starke tomorrow. The program’s director Paul Ortiz says participating in this event is going to be a great opportunity to gather oral histories to add to their collection.
He says documenting these interviews will teach UF students and the public alike about the struggles of veterans and the costs of war.
