Veterans Video Series
The Camden County Board of Freeholders is committed to its past, present, and future service members and their families. Part of this commitment is to promote awareness of those who have served our country, and the impact they have on our community members. The two video series below share different perspectives, one from the veterans point of view and the other from a loved one's.
The Voices of Camden County's Veterans
The Voices of Camden County's Veterans is a series of documentaries sponsored by the Freeholders that features the history and experiences of our local veterans during their time of service to our country. The films are produced by the Rutgers Oral History Archives and the Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs.
- World War II in the Pacific (click to watch on YouTube) The first film in the series is World War II in the Pacific. The documentary recounts their stories of service on the land, sea and air, from the kamikaze-scarred Intrepid to remote airbases in Papua New Guinea, and from the enemy-infested jungles of Guam to the bloody beach at Iwo Jima.
The film tells the story of the War in the Pacific through the eyes of four Camden County Veterans: USMC Veteran John Welsh of Somerdale, USMC Veteran John Lauriello of Haddon Township, Navy Veteran Edward Hill of Pennsauken Township and US Marine Corps Aviation Veteran Linwood Allen of Berlin.
