A program called Operation Record-A-Story lets kids hear their deployed military parent read them a bedtime story. Starting today on Veteran's Day, military Moms and Dads separated from their children can share story time as a family through this new program. Publications International's, Ltd. (PIL) Record a Story books are now being recorded by servicemen and servicewomen at USO locations in the United States, Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. PIL donated 5,000 Record a Story books to the United Through Reading Military Program for military service members to record for their children. After the book captures the service member's voice reading the story out loud, it will be sent, together with a video of the parent recording the story, to their kids in time for the holidays.
