It's an opportunity to document history through the words of Kern County's World War II veterans.
Wednesday, several veterans were invited to our KGET studios, to share their memories of the war, while their interviews were captured on video for future generations to see.
It's a collaborative effort with Honor Flight Kern County, 17 News, the Kern High School District, American Sound Recording Studios, and the Historical Society.
Community volunteers conducted the interviews.
"Apparently there's a great deal of interest about World War II that hasn't been revived or awakened," said veteran Ray Balise.
"These stories are just absolutely amazing and way more than I thought I would ever learn, getting a really personal take on their experiences on World War II," said Seaanna Fichtner, a CSUB history major.
The footage will eventually be placed in the Kern County Library and later, the Library of Congress.
For more information or if you know a World War II veteran who would like to tell his or her story, call Ken Hooper at 699-3046.
