LPB TO TAKE PART IN LAKE CHARLES’ VETERANS DAY ACTIVITIES SATURDAY, NOV. 11
LPB will take part in the City of Lake Charles Mayor’s Armed Forces Commission Veterans Day activities at the Lake Charles Civic Center, Saturday, November 11, 2017. As part of their community outreach for the PBS series The Vietnam War: A Film By Ken Burns & Lynn Novick, LPB will bring their 20 x 30 Traveling Map of Vietnam and record oral histories from Vietnam veterans in the Lake Charles area. LPB invites all Vietnam veterans to sign the map of the Vietnam War Theater. Veterans, family members of veterans, and anyone affected by the Vietnam War will also be able to record their stories.

Veterans who would like to record an oral history need to schedule a time with LPB by calling Marian at (225) 767-4204 or 1-800-272-8161, ext. 4204. Veterans who come to record their oral history are encouraged to bring photographs, and other small memorabilia from their time in Vietnam. LPB will schedule recording appointments on the half hour from 9:30AM to 11AM and 1 to 4PM. All interviews will be cataloged in the Louisiana Digital Media Archive http://www.ladigitalmedia.org.

Veterans can also record their own testimonies and submit them on LPB's website: http://www.lpb.org/vietnam. LPB’s inclusion in this event is being sponsored by the Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau and the City of Lake Charles.
