VOICES OF MISSISSIPPI VETERANS TO SOUND OFF
ON PUBLIC BROADCASTING RADIO NOV. 11
HATTIESBURG -- To celebrate Veterans Day on Nov. 11, the Center for Oral History and Cultural Heritage at The University of Southern Mississippi brings to you the voices of Mississippi men and women who served our country from World War I through the Vietnam War. The stories of these veterans will be featured throughout the day statewide on Mississippi Public Broadcasting Radio.

Join in throughout the day to hear veterans share their reflections on training, combat, and the legacies of the conflicts in which they participated. Listen to defenders of freedom such as Gen. Elmo Bell, who persevered through the Battle of the Bulge and remembers it as "pure, unadulterated misery." The contribution of Mississippians in the wars of the 20th century is truly impressive, said Dr. Stephen Sloan, the acting director at the Center for Oral History and Cultural Heritage.

"We honor these veterans by taking heed of the sacrifices and hardships they endured in service to their country," Sloan said.

For more information, contact Dr. Stephen Sloan at (601) 266-5606.
