Other upcoming facets of the project include the digitalization of memorabilia such as letters and articles associated with West Virginians' role in the military.
In addition, a documentary, book and play based on the project are also in the works and will debut around Veterans Day.
The preservation project is funded by a $350,000 grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and is seeking additional funding from interested donors.
The photos in the exhibit were taken by Glenville alumnus Mark Romano, and are a preview of the upcoming book, "Heroes Among Us," based on the veterans at the center of the project.
"It's been an amazing experience to be able to record what they went through with pictures and in their own words," Romano said. "They did not have the opportunity to tell their stories. Now, even after these vets are gone, their stories will live on. It's a true legacy."
A TV documentary about the project will debut Nov. 3, prior to the Veterans and Military Ball at Glenville's Mollohan Campus Community Center Ballroom.
The photo exhibit will move to Glenville's art gallery for its grand opening Nov. 5. It is free and open to the public.
On Nov. 8 and 9, a play written by Bob Henry Baber, the project's director, will premiere and combines the veterans' interviews with original music. The play will be held at Glenville's Fine Arts Center and is free and open to the public.
