Madison  – Wisconsin Public Radio is seeking veterans, active service members and families to record, preserve and share their stories for the Military Voices Initiative.

Together with StoryCorps, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of people from all backgrounds and beliefs, WPR will record stories Aug. 24 through Sept. 4.

Those interested are encouraged to reserve a virtual recording time now at or by calling 800-850-4406. English and Spanish translators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Seeking representation from all branches and eras, WPR is especially interested in recording the experiences of veterans and service members from underrepresented and marginalized populations in Wisconsin. These include women, African American, Latinx, Native American, Hmong/Lao and LGBTQ veterans among others.  

StoryCorps preserves the recordings in its archive at the Library of Congress.
