Tullahoma, Tennessee (PressExposure) January 10, 2012 -- Project 365 Vets dedicated to honoring a Veteran a day every day of the year is seeking Veterans Stories.
Project 365 Vets (http://365vets.wordpress.com) features a different Veteran telling their story in their own words every day in 2012. The goal of the project is to honor our service men and women, raise awareness about issues veterans face on a daily basis, and preserve their stories for future generations.
We are currently seeking veterans interested in sharing their stories. We are accepting stories of both peace time and war time veterans of all branches of service. If you are interested in participating in the project our contact information is available on the website, and Tina Shang can be reached at Email firstname.lastname@example.org and phone number: 931-571-8675.
The 365 Vets project leader Tina Shang said, "We cannot think of a better way to illustrate the issues faced by our veterans than through their stories. These are stories that are often difficult to tell, and difficult to hear, but they are stories that need to be heard." At Project 365 Vets, we believe that through these stories we can honor our veterans, promote awareness, and be a catalyst for change. These men and women are heroes, we are simply the curators of an amazing collection of stories they have been generous enough to share.
Project 365 Vets expects to launch a new website to accompany the blog in February. We want to offer members of the site a community hub where they can share their stories, connect with their peers, form support groups, collaborate on advocacy efforts, start grass roots campaigns, and share resources. We hope that through the site and community veterans can find the support and resources that they need. We will be tackling a number of issues including homelessness, PTSD, and unemployment.
Project 365 Vets began December 31st 2011, and has received a tremendous amount of support, and interest in a short time. We feel that this small project has the potential to have a big impact in the lives of veterans. Our first veteran feature John A. Robinson said, "My participation in the project resolved an issue that has nagged me for 4 decades". The process of telling their stories can be therapeutic, and the response from the readers is already having an impact.
