Last Saturday, the NYC Veterans Oral History Project was on Staten Island for a morning of interviews with Korean War veterans. Several volunteers made it out to Staten Island to record these stories in the amazing Adult Learning Center at St. George Library.
Volunteer Tom Reichert Interviews Colonel Paul Dietrich"I'm doing this because sometimes the Korean War is left out of history classes. It's important for people of all generations to know what happened," said Dominick Conti, a Korean War veteran from the 45th Infantry Division when he came in for his interview.
George Parsons, Chair of the Cpl. Allan F. Kivlehan Chapter of Korean War Veterans and Colonel Paul Dietrich were also interviewed on Saturday about their time served in Korea.
The NYC Veterans Oral History Project looks forward to many more interviews with Korean War Veterans, as well as veterans from all wars and branches of service.
