World War II veterans outreach
The Coast Guard has announced an initiative to identify and collect the oral histories of its World War II veterans. Coast Guard World War II veterans, including SPARs and merchant mariners, are encouraged to record their histories online with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project at www.loc.gov/folklife/vets.
Those veterans needing assistance in recording their stories can receive help from their local Coast Guard Auxiliary public affairs contact by leaving a message at 877-875-6296.
