SALUTE to SERVICE (September 11, 2014)
In appreciation of the veterans of Lawrence County, a FREE event was held for the public. Veterans were encouraged to attend on September 11, 2014 at 6 pm at the Edison Manor 222 West Edison Avenue New Castle PA 16101. There were invited speakers, an all American dinner, and videographer Bert Gerstnecker was on site to interview and video any of the veterans who wanted their story told
The interviews, pictures and narratives conducted at the Salute to Service event will be posted under the Oral History section of this website when they become available. We hope to add to and enhance the oral histories so that any veteran or family of a veteran who has passed has the opportunity to have their service and sacrifices to their country be archived and preserved for future generations of family and friends.
