Wyoming Public Media hosts StoryCorps’ Military Voices Initiative in Cheyenne July 18th-29th

Military Voices ~ A StoryCorps Initiative: 3 images of a Military Person with a Family Member

StoryCorps, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to recording, preserving, and sharing the stories of people from all backgrounds and beliefs, announces its 2022 Military Voices Initiative tour, made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and undertaken in partnership with veteran service organizations across the country. StoryCorps will honor veterans and members of the military community in Wyoming by collecting their oral histories.

StoryCorps’ MobileBooth—an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio—will be parked at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. The organization will offer both in-person and virtual recording opportunities July 18th-29th. If you are in the Cheyenne area, stop by for a photo with the famous MobileBooth, meet the StoryCorps team, and enjoy the lovely grounds of the Botanic Gardens!
