The Remember My Service Project is a compilation of letters, interviews and photos that span from September 11, 2001 through the end of 2010. National Guard historian Alan Brown says he gathered a lot of information for this project.
He says the book will have some journal pages in the back of it for guardsmen to fill out with some memories of their service. Brown says this book will be an asset to future generations who want to know about military service in a post-September 11th world.
Brown says the guard has been deployed around the word, and started the Agribusiness Development Team in Afghanistan, as well as helped out domestically with Katrina and the tornado in Joplin. All of these missions and interviews with families are documented in this project.
Brown says the guardsmen will get their book and DVD this December, most likely when the platoons have Family Day. Copies will be available to anyone else who wants to see the Missouri National Guard history later.
