Watch Interviews with Local Veterans

Share Button

Throughout the month of November, the Community Media Center, (CMC) will honor Veterans Day with a special programming on Channel 19,featuring interviews with Carroll County Veterans.  For specific dates and times, visit the Channel 19 program guide.

In October, the CMC collected interviews with local veterans as part of the Carroll County History project. Over 20 local veterans participated by sharing their story or by interviewing fellow service members.

The special programming will include interviews with veterans who served in WWII and during the Vietnam era. Some saw combat while others served in support roles, and many had friends who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Through the personal accounts of those who served, we begin to see how military experiences, during a time of conflict or at peace, affect every aspect of life, regardless of whether a person served overseas or stateside.  

It is the goal of the Veterans Oral History Collection that through these personal accounts of local veterans, viewers will better understand the realities of military service, and of war.  By recording their stories, we not only honor their courage and patriotism, but also preserve their memories and provide a resource to help educate future generations.

This is the fourth year that the Community Media Center has collected interviews with local veterans. Videos recorded for the project become part of the Carroll County History Projects online video archive. To date, the Carroll History Project has collected nearly 70 oral histories from area veterans.

Viewers can watch these and other interviews with local residents online by visiting www.carrollhistory.org.

Carroll County veterans interested in sharing their story should contact Sherry Taylor at 410-386-4415 or email History@carrollmediacenter.org to have their name added to a list for future recording dates.
