This is another installment of the Veteran Voices Project.
In this episode Howard Pfeifer, Merchant Marine, tells the story of his last night of liberty while on a convoy in the Russian Arctic.
The project is dedicated to capturing, preserving, and sharing the voices, images, and experiences of Pittsburgh area veterans of all branches of service and eras, including peace and war-time service. The Pittsburgh area includes all of southwestern Pennsylvania.
For historical and scholarly purposes, every veteran’s story is carefully preserved and archived in its entirety with the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum.
