A Grand Junction City Councilmember became a part of the Museum of Western Colorado's efforts to preserve the past, Wednesday.
Councilmember Jim Doody retold the story of his brother, Tom,
who was killed in action while flying a helecoptor over Laos in 1971.
The presentation will become a part of the museum's Oral History Project, which honors those from the Western Slope who served their country. The project covers every era of war, and doody, who's also the founder of the Western Slope Vietnam War Memorial, says documenting the story of his brother has special meaning.
The museum will continue to gather the accounts of Western Slope veterans throughout the next several months.
The Courage and Sacrifice Exhibit will be unveiled on November 11th.
