Combat to Kentucky Oral History Collection Featured at Syracuse University

Doug Boyd, Director of the UK Libraries Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History and Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Anthony Dotson, director of the UK Veterans Resource Center, spoke this week at the Syracuse University Veterans Resource Center about the award winning project, Combat to Kentucky. 

 The project documents the stories of veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan as they pursue post-secondary education in Kentucky.  A web site contains compelling student-veteran video interviews that create an engaging oral history documentary. The interviews highlight the difficult transition from military to student life and illustrate the student-veterans’ unique college experience at the University of Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky University, and Bluegrass Community and Technical College.
