About C2KY

From Combat to Kentucky Oral History Project consists of personal interviews with veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan currently pursuing post secondary education in Kentucky. Initial interviews will be conducted with veterans attending the University of Kentucky but the project includes veterans at all of Kentucky’s higher educational institutions. Several in-depth audio and video interviews will focus on each veteran’s military experience as well as their transition back into civilian life, particularly into higher education.


If you are an Iraq or Afghanistan veteran and would like to participate or receive more information on the From Combat to Kentucky Oral History Project, contact the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at (859) 257-9672 or Doug Boyd at doug.boyd@uky.edu.  If you are interested in participating, please complete the C2KY Participant Information Form.
