- Veteran’s Day Interview
In honor of Veteran’s Day, The Green House Project would like to honor those who have served to protect our country and our freedom by collecting meaningful stories to honor their lives and contributions:
To participate in this project:
• Collect important information about who that veteran is (where they served, important life highlights)
• Conduct short interview with a veteran in your community or one who knows them well
• Share a photo/video with the veteran’s interview with The Green House Project (email Rachel, firstname.lastname@example.org)
• Present the story to your local media outlets
1) What makes you proud to be a veteran?
2) How would you describe a good day? How does The Green House Project support you in this (if applicable)?
3) What is a message you would like to share with future generations about veteran’s day?
- Tips for Contacting Local Media:
• Answer the question,”What makes this veteran and their story unique?”
