Here’s your chance, ladies and gentlemen, let them (and our future generations) know WE were there!
The Veterans History Project, is gathering volunteer interviewers—family and friends of veterans, communities and a wide variety of organizations—to record the one-of-a-kind interviews of wartime veterans, collect oral histories of America’s World War II veterans, and send them to the Project, where they are housed in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress.

To become involved, download a new Veterans History Project field kit from the Veterans History Project Web site, request the kit via e-mail at vohp@loc.gov or call the toll-free message line at (888) 371-5848.
