Remember and Honor is a resource developed by Brad Hoopes dedicated to the preservation of stories as told by United States military veterans. The stories provide personal perspectives and historical context from those who served during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm, and in deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. The Northern Colorado Veterans History Project is represented here with recordings created between 2002 and 2014. For more information on Remember and Honor, see the website.
