It’s one of my favorite weeks! Veterans Day is this Wednesday and I couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to some of the veterans I’ve had the privilege of interviewing. I’ll be sharing a new story on video every day this week!

Today, meet Larry Hood, veteran of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division. His stories from the Vietnam War gave me goosebumps.

And, for the first time in the history of Memory Lane Jane, I’m doing a GIVEAWAY! If you have a loved one who is a veteran and you’d like to preserve their military story, I’m giving away one hour of interview time (in-person and masked or via video conference) and transcription! It’s amazing how much story you can capture in 60 minutes! Put the name of the veteran you’d like to honor in the comments or send me an email at by this Saturday, November 14, at noon! I’ll announce the winner in the afternoon.
