A Conversation with A Westford Veteran

These oral histories let our veterans share their experiences in their own words, with their own voice, giving us a little insight into the sacrifices they made in service to our country.   

A Conversation with a Veteran is a program of the Westford Museum and Historical Society to conduct interviews of the Westford’s Korean and Vietnam veterans. This project is sponsored by the Massachusetts State Historical Records Advisory Board, Veterans Heritage Grant Project.
