Dear Kenilworth residents,

My name is Michael Naya, Jr. and I am a seventeen-year-old high school student from Kenilworth. Over the past three years I have been interviewing Great Depression survivors, World War II and Korean War veterans. I have been doing this because I love history and one day I would like to write a book on the men and women from these events.

World War I, World War II, and Korea. I am seeking information such as photographs, letters, documents, or information on former servicemen and women from Kenilworth and specifically from World War II and the Korean War. Information on veterans both living and deceased would be appreciated. Additional information from World War II such as information on homefront workers, Rosie the Riveters, Air Raid Wardens, child eyewitnesses, veterans and information from children and widows of veterans from Kenilworth is appreciated. I would be grateful as I would like to ensure that these men and women are not forgotten.
