Introducing the Board of Directors

Making History ProjectThe new Board of Directors page for the Making History Project is now available for review on this website. Our voluntary Board now includes Dr. Andrae Marak, Ph.D., SGM Francis Gene Garren (Ret.), and Mark Meland, Esq. We are very proud of our new Board of Directors and urge you to visit the new page to see a personal biography for each Director.

I think you will agree that the Board of Directors is a diverse and talented group dedicated to both history and the preservation of the legacy of our Veterans. If you should have any ideas for the Making History Project, or if you are a Veteran or know of a Veteran who would like to give an oral history interview, please be sure to reach out to us. Likewise, if you would like to lend a hand for this important project, let us know as we are always looking for assistance.
