Military Monday – Save your Stories

Mom, dad, uncle Ralph, Grandpa Joe, cousin Phil, aunt Marie – what are your military stories?

Most everyone has a military member or two or more in their families. Have you stopped to ask them about their stories? Have you stopped to investigate the stories of those who died in service? If not, now’s the time to start saving those stories.

Lorel Kapke, the founder of Sort Your Story has done just that. She created two videos about her father’s World War II service. You can view them here: Video 1 and Video 2.

How wonderful that she has been able to capture the stories and photos of her father before they are lost.

Can I do that? you may ask? YES! Most computers, cell phones, IPads, and other devices have the ability to record video and audio. So take these devices with you when you visit family this holiday season. Record those stories while you have opportunity. Add those videos and audio files to Sort Your Story and share them with family members so everyone can enjoy the history.

Happy Holidays!
