VHP (Veterans History Project) Report: In 2006 the Roundtable sent 27 interviews or

memoirs to the Library of Congress for the VHP. The figures break down as follows:

12 Army including 1 WWI veteran, 11 Air Force/Air Corps, 3 Navy and 1 Marine. Five

of the 27 were Roundtable members. We are in desperate need of more Roundtable

volunteers to interview veterans. If you can only do one or two it would help.

Please bring interviews or memoirs to our meetings. The Roundtable will pay for their

shipment to Washington, DC. Thanks a million to the Roundtable members who have

participated so far.
