Collection of the Month
For our latest collection of the month, the VHP has selected Robert John Weisel. Mr. Weisel served in the U.S. Marine Corps during Vietnam and was a Captain (O-3). He served time in Da Nang, Chu Lai and Ky Ha, Vietnam. He continued to serve his fellow soldiers by volunteering his time to collect the oral histories of veterans for the VHP here at CCSU. Although he passed away this past November he lives on through his own oral history and those he collected. By accessing our search engine and typing Weisel into the last name field, you can listen to his interview as well as view his materials.
