Governor Paul R. LePage and First Lady Ann M. LePage Tuesday will join Bureau of Veterans Services director Adria Horn, veterans and their families to announce the Maine Veterans Legacy Project, a program helping to preserve the living histories of veterans.

The Veterans Legacy Project provides an opportunity for all generations of Maine families to connect with our military heroes, and enables citizens to actively volunteer to protect American history.

The Bureau of Veterans Services created the Maine Veterans Legacy Project with the mission of preserving Maine history by collecting first-person accounts of those who defended the United States during wartime. The Bureau of Veterans Services collaborated with a Maine media partner to film and produce the interviews and the State of Maine Archives will file the interviews, which will be made available to the public for view.

The Office of the Governor and the Bureau of Veterans’ Services invite members of the public and the media to learn more about the project on Tuesday, November 3 at 10:00 a.m. in the Hall of Flags.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 3, 2015

WHERE: Hall of Flags, State Capitol Building, Augusta
