Oral history recordings

What a great idea for folks that may not have a digital recorder! I have one but forgot to take it home with me on Christmas. The bummer was that my dad, who never talks about his past, started talking about when he was in the army and stationed in Ansbach Germany. I wish I would of had my recorder with me! I will have to write it down instead but it would have been great to hear it from him.
