PUEBLO — The Pueblo City-County Library District is calling for submissions of photos documenting the Vietnam War era (1964-1975).

The library is wanting to collect photos of veterans here in the states, or abroad, protests or activism, or even photos of life from the time period.

The photos will be put together in a video for this year's All Pueblo Reads event, which begins on Friday, Oct. 2. This will allow people to learn how much of a role Puebloans played during the Vietnam War.

"As we go along in time, a lot of those stories are starting to be lost, and we are wanting to make sure that the community knows about the Vietnam War here in our community as well as members of our community serving during that time," said Nick Potter with the Pueblo City County Library District.

According to the district, photos that are selected will be archived for future generations.
