_Maryland_ Portraits013.jpg

The stories of your service to our nation are so important and must always be remembered. AARP can help you curate, record and store your memories. Whether stories about the friends you made or lost, basic training, the challenges you overcame, or the battles you fought, your memories can easily live on for all to remember. A smart phone is all you will need to participate in this FREE, four-part, virtual series led by professional curator, storyteller, and videographer Jon Camp. The courses are available to anyone and are listed in Eastern Time. Please register for each class individually.
