If you ever encounter a veteran who complains that his or her life or war is forgotten, ask that veteran this question: What have you personally done to make people remember?
HOW TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR MILITARY LIFE
You don't need any writing or typing skills because your book will be a compilation of all of your (available) military documents, photos, keepsakes (cards, trinkets, etc.), and of course your Certificates displayed in transparent page-holders in sequential order.
WHY CREATE A MILITARY HISTORY
With rare exceptions, children of a military grandparent are more interested in your military life than children of a military parent. Great-grandchildren are even more intensely interested, and interest increases in future generations of your descendants.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START WORKING ON YOUR BOOK
Now... today... Statistics show that only when veteran's age do we become more interested in preserving our history to teach our young even after we're gone. Your Military Life History Book need not be limited to only one volume. You may wish to create several volumes organized by base assignment, rank, war duty or other defining periods of your service.
DISTRIBUTING YOUR MILITARY LIFE BOOK
The original copy of your Book should be Willed to a responsible offspring who will, in turn, do the same as he or she ages. In addition, you can send photocopies of your Book to:
You can also scan the pages of your Book in pdf format and send a CD-rom to The American War Library where your digitized Book will be listed in your personal, online military file and can be downloaded by anyone, everywhere, anytime.
