The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project (VHP) in 2000 as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. VHP’s purpose is to collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal accounts of America’s wartime veterans so future generations may hear directly from them and better understand their selfless service.
Here is how it works: Once a veteran applies to be a part of the project, the veteran will be contacted by my staff to arrange an interview at a mutually convenient time. The recorded interview is then sent to the Library of Congress to be part of the collection of veterans’ stories, so future generations can go back to see and hear the stories of those who served our nation.
If you are a veteran, please take time to share your story by applying below.
The extraordinary bravery and sacrifices of our veterans inspire us, and they deserve to be remembered forever. To view interviews, visit www.loc.gov/vets.
