A collection of veterans' stories before they are lost to time.
The goal of the “Before They are Gone” project is to collect the stories of US war veterans.
We believe that the stories our veterans tell should be remembered and kept as national treasures. With today’s technology there is no excuse not to be feverishly documenting these stories before they are forever lost, as the members of our greatest generation slowly succumb to age.
The funds collected from this campaign will be used to interview several veterans with the hope of collecting at least ten, fifteen to thirty min. stories. It will also be used to purchase equipment, pay for legal expenses, and to pay for studio editing.
The end product will be produced into a radio series for the AudioShortStories App and Packaged for sell on the MyAudioShortStories.com web site.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge is time, being a veteran and well connected to veterans groups we can save a tremendous amount of time finding subjects.
The next risk is a possible a deficiency in interviewing skills this project is important to us so we will be obtaining the assistance of a free lance journalist to assist with the interviews.
