Rep. Levin, Others Launching Local Vets Project

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Mich. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Sander Levin joins a suburban Detroit mayor and an official representing veterans in launching a history project for those who have served in the military.

The Democratic lawmaker will attend an announcement Wednesday at the Warren Community Center with Warren Mayor Jim Fouts and Southfield Veterans Commissioner Dan Brightwell. The aim is for local veterans to record their stories for the Library of Congress.

Brightwell is expected to interview World War II veteran Sam Fittante on camera after the announcement as part of the national project. Congress in 2000 passed legislation creating the project, which collects oral histories, memoirs, diaries, letters and other documents from those who have served during wartime.

Since Friday, Levin's Facebook page has featured stories of local vets who have participated in the project.
