Veterans History Project

Today:   As we approach Memorial Day, we talk with Karen Lloyd, a retired Army Colonel who is director of the Veteran's History Project. It is part of the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center that collects, preserves and makes accessible the personal accounts of U.S. war veterans so that their stories live on.  She is encouraging individuals and groups to contribute photos, letters or diaries of deceased veterans and to record conversations with those still living.  And Karen will offer information on how to do this.

And we bring you the second of the two-part Times of Northwest Indiana "ByLine" report on how many people opt to leave the Region for different career opportunities or a better quality of life -- but, as we hear in this second part, that many are still moving into northwest Indiana.
