GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. He's traveling the country hearing the stories of World War II veterans for the library of congress, but this vet has a story of his own.

Wayne Williams is a disabled vet himself, and he captures these memories in hopes of preserving the history he lived through.

Videojournalist Chris Schumann shows us why he's dedicated so much of his time to share these powerful memories.

If you're interested in participating in the project, Wayne still has some openings available for veterans hoping to share their stories.

To make arrangements, call Wayne at (303)-503-3415.

Wayne is also accepting donations to help continue his work. He has a crowd-funding campaign running through gofundme.com - just click the link below and search for 'Last Man Standing' to donate.
