Internet Archive: Preserving the Stories

We have been asked on numerous occasions ” What happens to the stories if the Oshawa Remembers Blog is not operational?

This is a good question

We have posted the audio stories with a Creative Commons  License at http://www.archive.org

The direct link is

Volume One

http://www.archive.org/details/CanadianWarVeteranStories

Volume Two

http://www.archive.org/details/CandianWorldWarTwoVeteranStories

Volume Three

http://www.archive.org/details/CanadianVeteranStoriesVolumeThree

Volume Four

http://www.archive.org/details/CanadianWarVeteranStoriesVolumeFour

William Sam Magee has provided twenty-five stories on the Oshawa Remembers site on his life experiences during WW 2 while serving with the First Special Service Force, a joint US and Canadian multi-skilled training group.

In addition each of these  narrative stories are short personal reflections which are also uploaded  for free distribution under the Creative Commons license at the Internet Archives  website

Volume One

Volume Two:

Volume Three

The second strategy is to provide the stories to community radio via PRX.org

The Public Radio exchange is a service to radio stations to play audio clips
