Veterans Stories and Medical Care
Thor Ringler, the director of the VA’s "My Life, My Story" project in Madison. Ringler oversees a federally funded program that collects these interviews and transcribes them into 1,000-word stories that become a part of that veteran’s medical record. More than 800 veterans have told their stories so far. One story involves Glenn, Ken, and Bob Boyd, brothers from McFarland, Wisconsin, who improbably found themselves reunited on the other side of the world.
