From Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul

Who Is Sidney R. Slagter?

Sidney R. Slagter is the founder and president of Veteran Stories, Inc., a corporation dedicated to recognizing and honoring veterans from all wars and all branches of service. His goal is to preserve the memories of our country’s greatest heroes so they can be passed on to future generations.

Born into a family of veterans, he developed a passion for military history at an early age, listening to his uncles’ and cousins’ tales of serving in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He spends his time reading volumes of stories sent in by letter, e-mail and fax from all over the globe. He has appeared as a guest speaker on many television and radio shows, and he recently addressed the members and guests of the Medal of Honor Society in Pueblo, Colorado.

Sid’s work has brought him into personal contact with thousands of our living heroes and their families, and his great honor is to share these amazing stories with the world.

Sid and his wife, Ilene, make their home in sunny Florida.
