Umatilla County vets urged to share stories

UMATILLA -- The Umatilla County Historical Society wants to collect reminiscences of World War II from county residents.

The society expects to publish these reminiscences, perhaps in different volumes, as a permanent record of what life was like.

The society invites people who lived in Umatilla County during WWII as well as county residents who were in the armed forces during that time to contact the society offices at Heritage Station in Pendleton, 541-276-0012, if they would like to contribute reminiscences.
