Dear Submarine Veterans,

My name is Marilyn Torres and I work in the education department of the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia. This summer we are starting a wonderful project to record the stories of World War II and Cold War submarine veterans, and I am writing to offer you the opportunity to share your memories. "Stories, Students, and the Silent Service" will pair high school students with submarine veterans to be interviewed and filmed. The filmed interviews will be archived in our library, and you will receive a copy of your own interview to keep. The interviews will be edited to create a 28 minute video to be played in our museum.

I am really excited about this project and the opportunities it will provide by making connections between submarine veterans and high school students.

The first interviews will take place on Friday, July 14th with additional dates taking place later in the summer. Take a look at the attached flyer for more information and please call me if you are interested in lending yourself, your stories, and your memories to this project.

You can reach me at 215-413-8647, or you can email me at education@phillyseaport.com.

Thank you so much,

Marilyn Torres
