Additional Information

In honor of Veterans’ Day, November 11, 2020, the Western Heritage Museum and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame is inviting members of our community to participate in our Veterans of Lea County Oral History Project. The Museum is interested in collecting the stories of the men and women in our community who have served in the military. Recordings of the Veterans of Lea County Oral History Project will be held by the Western Heritage Museum and made available through our website and YouTube channel.

How can you participate? Since COVID 19 restrictions are still in effect, we will be conducting a ZOOM forum for Lea County Veterans on November 11 and November 12, at 10 – 11am and
1 – 2 pm. There is a limit of 8 people per forum. All you need is a computer, smart phone or tablet that has a camera and built-in microphone and an internet connection to participate. Since this will be done over ZOOM, you may need to download the free ZOOM “app” to your device. Each forum will be recorded and made available to the public on our website and our YouTube channel.

If you or someone close to you would like to be a part of this forum please send an email to Mary Lyle, mlyle@nmjc.edu. Include the following information:
• The day and time you would prefer
• Your name
• Email address
• The dates of your service (ex. 1940-1948)
• The branch of service
• The highest rank attained

You will be sent a ZOOM invitation along with some sample discussion questions. All of the recordings are the property of the Western Heritage Museum and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame.
