The U.S. Library of Congress Veterans History Project has partnered with Angelic Health to recruit and train volunteers to collect the stories of our veterans. All U.S. veterans are invited to participate, regardless of branch, rank or gender. They may share a recorded oral history, as well as donate original photos, letters, etc. Each veteran will have his or her own webpage on the Library of Congress’ website. Their story will be preserved and made accessible forever at the Library of Congress. Volunteers are needed to help record these priceless interviews.
The U.S. Congress created the Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center in 2000 to collect, preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
