Voices of Dutchess County Veterans
If the Dutchess County Historical Society can be said to be in the business of anything, we are in the business of sharing the stories of our county's residents. What stories could me more important than the stories of the generations of men and women who have served and sacrificed? Here we begin, with great humility, the task of giving a platform to a very few of those voices. Other veterans oral histories, right.
