War Veterans interviewed to keep historical perspectives alive

We may never know what Veterans go through when at War, but those in Adams County are making sure we never forget those who've served.  

Roughly a dozen war Veterans were interviewed inside the Adams County Courthouse to share their experiences during the War.  Ninety year old WWII Veteran Louie Demers said telling people how the war really was is vital for people to understand how important their freedom is.

"Trying to get the message out to be thankful for what we got and hold onto our freedom at all cost.  I mean it tears you up when you think about it too much," he said.

All of the interviews will head to the state archives and possibly even to the Library of Congress.
