Teen interviews WWII veterans to preserve their stories
LAKE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - One Lake County teenager has made it his mission to interview members of "the greatest generation." At first glance, 13-year-old Ben Mac-Jackson looks like any other eighth-grader doing his nightly school work, but what Ben is really doing right now is purely voluntary and truly impressive.
"They said, 'We're going to step up to the plate and fight these people,' not knowing that 70 years later, there'd be people like me trying to preserve their stories for my generation, their generation, and the coming generations. That's my goal," he explains.
