World War II Oral Histories


World War II was a transforming event in American history. But the number of people who have direct memories of the war is shrinking by the day. In September, WILL-TV will air the Ken Burns documentary "The War." In conjunction with the program, WILL is helping with an effort to record as many oral histories as possible from those who lived through that era, either on the battle lines or on the home front. AM 580's Tom Rogers introduces us to people who have made it their mission to get memories on tape.
