Bismarck Veterans gathered today to share personal stories of their time serving in the military.

Six Veterans took to the podium to perform their monologue in front of family friends and fellow Veterans. The creative writing workshop is funded by a grant from the North Dakota Humanities Council, and speakers say they enjoy hearing each other's unique experiences. 

"Well everybody has their own unique story you know its kind of inspiring to listen to some of the guys and you know especially a lot of those guys are older and they've been through Vietnam and those were tough times to be in and I don't know it's interesting to listen to those," says Veteran speaker, James Whitcher. 

"I think we really got a good sample of the different experiences in the military and I'm glad we were able to tell our stories," says Veteran speaker, Thomas Turck. 

A collective reading of participants will be held in Grand Forks on Memorial Day.
