Amberly Russell, Zoomin' on Ponga, Sharing stories of experiences in the armed forces, Nov. 2021

US Army Veteran, archivist, and photographer Amberly Russell, Preservation Services Manager at Permanent was our guest last night in our Zoomin’ on Ponga event held over Zoom. The event did not disappoint as Amberly brought her unique set of skills to the challenge of talking to loved ones about their experiences in the armed services. Amberly was in the Army Reserves and chose to go on active duty right after the 9/11 attack in 2001. She shared how her choice to become an MP was in part inspired by her grandfather’s stories of his own experiences as an MP. In her talk, Amberly seamlessly navigated between the joys as a soldier of connecting with local children to the healing power of story.
