Paradigm Hosts First Veterans History Project Day


Minneapolis, MN – Paradigm Reporting & Captioning was honored to host its first-ever Veterans History Project Day on Saturday, October 30.  Paradigm court reporters, videographers and staff volunteered their time and talent to help capture the stories of eight American veterans for the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.  The National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) has partnered with the Library of Congress to help collect as many veteran testimonies as possible.  It is an ongoing effort that began when Congress voted unanimously in 2000 to start this project to help preserve veteran stories before they are lost.  Paradigm President Jan Ballman, as Trustee on the Board of NCRF, expressed enthusiasm for the project and plans to make Veterans History Day at Paradigm an annual event.
