Films to be shown at veterans home


TILTON — VetFlix.org, a non-profit company that says it shows the human side of war by capturing the experiences of veterans in filmed interviews, will present two showings of several short films featuring the stories of veterans of World War II and the Korean War at the New Hampshire Veterans Home in November.


The shows, open to the public and free, will be on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the town hall of the home, 139 Winter St.

VetFlix, a company formed in Brookline in 2010, describes its mission as capturing, preserving and sharing veterans' stories through film, social marketing and other media before it's too late: an estimated 1,000 World War II veterans are dying each day around the world.


The interviews, done in an oral history style, tell the stories in veterans' own words.

For more information on VetFlix, contact Dan Marcek, 801-6943.

For more information on the veteran home, contact Len Stuart, NHVH program information officer, at 527-4898.
