ABOUT THE RECORDING PROCESS
- Participants will be interviewed by a friend or family member. A member of the StoryCorps team will facilitate the interview, but will not ask questions unless prompted.
- Participants do not have to specifically discuss their experience with the military. StoryCorps offers pages of discussion topics.
- Participants do not have to reside in Alaska Public Media’s listening area as long as the person planning to interview them does. Likewise, if a participant lives in Alaska Public Media’s listening area, they can be interviewed by a family member or friend who lives outside of this area.
- Participants do not have to be veterans, they can be active duty members, military spouses, or the children of veterans/active duty service members.
- After the 40-minute interview has concluded, participants can choose to share the interview with their local station and it will be archived at the Library of Congress. If the participants are not comfortable sharing their stories, they will get a copy of the recording and StoryCorps will delete it. Participants are not obligated to share their interviews.
The Military Voices Initiative is made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
