With the combined resources of Oklahoma’s PBS station, NewsOK designed and developed a Web site that preserves Oklahoma’s account of World War II. This site will be used to collect and accept videos, audio recordings, original photos and letters from the “Greatest Generation” of our time.

Inspired by the compelling World War II stories collected by Ken Burns and as part of a national initiative by PBS, NewsOK.com and OETA launched an aggressive statewide outreach effort to collect, preserve and share the personal stories from Oklahomans who served on the frontlines and maintained the home front. Watch this bug_camera.gifPBS Extended Sneak Preview. (27:00 cut into four parts)

All personal stories and historical accounts are eligible for the Library of Congress Veterans History Project and Archives in Washington D.C.
