Collington – Veterans and their stories

Collington residents have many stories to tell of how military service impacted their or family histories.

John Geron is encouraging folks to share their stories. Read the initial submissions – a young girl lies about her age to join the British Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps; A WWII vet goes on to a career as a journalist and later and academic; military careers are forged through hard work and opportunities.  Consider submitting your own history to John to expand the collection.

The collected stories, Military Histories submitted by Collington Residents, are listed on the Resident Directories page.

Also note that at the bottom of the Collingtonian page there are special issues from 2000-2002: We Were There: Collingtonians and WWII.
