Chaplains' Memories Sought

January 5, 2011

Tags: More chaplain stories, Veterans History Project

I got a call from a liaison for the Library of Congress's Veterans History Project yesterday. What fun! The project is gearing up for a focus on capturing the reminiscences of military chaplains.

From writing Miracles and Moments of Grace, I know that military chaplains have experienced some of the most terrible, and some of the most exhilarating moments of military service. Even now that the book is nearing release, I continue to hear from chaplains whose stories are riveting and need to be told.

Check out the Veterans History Project's simple guidelines for submitting written or recorded material. The LOC might host an event in February to roll out the focus on the chaplaincy, so I'll keep you posted on that.
