During this week, I agreed to help Collin with an interview and created a list of potential contacts for my project. I also talked briefly with a prospective interviewee who is approaching retirement from the Army.  He is a Lt. Colonel who may or may not be promoted to Colonel. He said he would be happy to do the interview.
My basic goal at this point is to find a veteran who chose to retire in Williamsburg and live independently, a couple more veterans who chose to retire in the Patriots Colony, at least one administrator from the Patriots Colony, an current military officer who is approaching retirement.  I think this would give me a fairly broad sense of the retirement choices and opportunities for veterans in the Williamsburg area.


The Williamsburg Documentary Project (WDP) strives to collect and preserve the rich past of Williamsburg, Virginia. By conducting oral history interviews, building physical and digital archives, and creating online exhibits, the WDP interprets Williamsburg’s recent past. The WDP works towards developing a better understanding of Williamsburg by bringing together individuals, local groups, Colonial Williamsburg, and the College of William & Mary.
