Our Lives Our Stories – Tarleton Oral History Project

Students from Tarleton’s Digital Media Studies area have produced a documentary featuring veterans of World War 2 from North Texas describing their experiences both at home and abroad. The feature-length film was created as an Applied Learning Experience (ALE) for service learning and directed by professor Chris Ireland.
