Kissimmee Air Museum, located at Florida’s Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM), is launching its new “Save the Stories” program on Jan. 30. Oral history interviewer Tom Mazzoli will be collecting and recording the memories of those who made history in World War II.
“Save the Stories” wants to preserve the stories of not only those on the front lines but also those on the home front during the war who, by their sacrifices and contributions, made a difference Mazzoli has dedicated the past 15 years to seeking out and recording the recollections of both the famous and nameless heroes of World War II. He will be continuing his efforts at the Kissimmee Air Museum the last Saturday of every month from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Pre-arranged interviews will take place in the hangar among the planes for visitors to enjoy as Mazzoli records their stories.
Dozens of veterans have already called the Kissimmee Air Museum to share their story. If you are a veteran (or know a veteran) and have a story to tell about your contributions to the war effort at home or on the front lines, call Kissimmee Air Museum at 407-870-7366 or Mazzoli at 407-656-7595 to set up an appointment to come into the museum to share your story. Interviewees will be assigned a date and time to have their personal histories recorded. Three interviews are selected for each month’s session.
