It included a detailed Finding Aid for each interview. Some of the topics addressed in the interviews include: Air Force training; service experiences in Vietnam and Laos and working at the Pentagon; perspectives on the Cold War; and daily life in Plattsburgh and North Country. These interviews are also deposited at the Plattsburgh Air Force Base Museum.
