FREMONT – For the second year in a row, Northeast Nebraska Telephone Company (NNTC) has made it their Veterans day mission to interview our Nebraska vets on camera, to preserve and share their stories.

NNTC will share those interviews online throughout this month in commemoration of Veterans Day. Each story is a unique glimpse into the lives of our servicemembers: some stories made the veterans laugh; others brought them to tears.

“We at NNTC want to showcase veterans, giving them the opportunity to remember what it was like to serve,” said the company in a press release. “We also wanted to give veterans a voice, to inspire younger generations to recognize the sacrifices made for our freedom.”
