New Jersey is creating an oral history project to preserve veterans' stories. A new law creates a foundation that will raise money to support and promote the gathering of veterans' oral histories. State Senator Bill Baroni co-sponsored the measure.
BARONI: Those stories will then be preserved forever for students and scholars and for New Jerseyans to remember the sacrifices our veterans made in their own words.
The foundation will be established in the state's Department of Military Affairs and have a nine member board of directors.
