StoryCorps Military Voices Initiative Coming To Monterey Bay Area

Apr 22, 2019

KAZU is proud to welcome StoryCorps back to the Monterey Bay area.  This time with its Military Voices Initiative.

StoryCorps will be recording at California State University Monterey Bay June 18th to 27th.

Forty reservations are available. 

You can reserve your spot now online here or by calling StoryCorps’ 24-hour, toll-free reservation line at 800-850-4406.    If there are no available appointments or the appointment you would like is taken, please sign up on the waitlist.  You will be contacted if there is a cancellation.

StoryCorps is a  national nonprofit organization dedicated to recording, preserving, and sharing the stories of people from all backgrounds and beliefs.  An interview gives you the chance to ask a friend, family member, or colleague about their lives during a 40 minute interview.  At the end of the conversation you will recieve a digital copy of your interview.  With your permission, a second copy will be preserved in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.  StoryCorps last visited the Monterey Bay area in 2010.

The Military Voices Initiative contributes to StoryCorps’ diverse collection by recording and preserving the stories of veterans, service members, and military families. It is an opportunity for them to share their experiences in their own words. It is also an opportunity for civilians to understand more clearly the complex realities of veterans’ service and sacrifice.
