New York veteran interviews available on YouTube

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Video interviews of hundreds of veterans from the Empire State are now available on a new YouTube channel established by the New York State Military Museum.

The channel has interviews of more than 600 New Yorkers who served in conflicts from World War II to Afghanistan and Iraq. Previously, anyone who wanted to see the videos had to visit the museum located in downtown Saratoga Springs.

The interviews are among the more than 2,000 collected by the museum and its Veterans Research Center.

The museum began conducting video interviews with veterans in 2000. Some of the interviews were conducted by museum employees, and others were done by family, friends or third parties such as historical societies and high school students.
