Veterans History Project

(http://www.loc.gov/vets)

Through recorded interviews and other documents, the Veterans History Project will chronicle veterans’ and other citizens’ wartime experiences, and the effect these experiences had in their lives. AMVETS is proud to be a founding partner in this valuable program to honor our nation’s veterans and those who served in support of them. The Veterans History Project is a part of the Library of Congress and its American Folklife Center.
