The project tells the stories of soldiers who have been unaccounted for in 5 wars.
The project began with a simple press release about an American Legion dinner to honor the county’s sole Vietnam War veteran who remains unaccounted for. He’s been featured in our paper a number of times, but we began wondering if veterans of other wars might be unaccounted for.
The interview is inspiring, and the project is very comprehensive, if a little disorganized.
The entire project includes maps, databases, articles, timelines, individual stories, a guestbook, AND a pretty big multimedia package.
Like most huge projects, there’s an organization problem. What do I click on first? Where do I start, where do I finish? How do I know if I’ve already read this part? Etc.
It makes me want to go digging around in public records and databases. I just need a topic to start with.
