Pleased with the Interview

The results of Patrick Russell‘s interview of me was better than expected. He made me comfortable during the interview, creating an environment that allowed me to express inter most thoughts to my best advantage. I was well pleased with the interview and have received many compliments from friends. I would recommend Mr. Russell to anyone seeking advice.

Patrick Russell of Making History

Patrick Russell of Making History Project was fantastic in capturing the oral history of one of our most prominent surgeons. He is very easy to work with, and makes everyone feel comfortable. I am so happy we took the time and energy to secure this piece of history in the development of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Urge All Vets to Talk

I enjoyed the idea that my story might be of interest.  It was a pleasant experience talking with you.  I would urge all vets to do so.

Interviews Provide a Context to Understand Veterans’ Experiences

Mr. Russell‘s work does an excellent job of capturing the trauma that WWII veterans suffered many years ago as well as their continued efforts to process it. His interviews not only provide us with a context to better understand their experiences, but also create spaces within which the veterans themselves can make meaning of their own experiences.
