Veterans History Project
Are you familiar with this wonderful program from the Library of Congress?
From their site: The VHP collects and "preserves the firsthand interviews and narratives of United States military veterans from World War I through the present. In addition to audio- and video-recorded oral history interviews, VHP accepts memoirs and collections of original photographs, letters, diaries, maps and other historical documents from veterans who served in the US armed services from World War I through the present".
Many public libraries participate by interviewing and recording the stories of the veteran's in their community. If you or someone in your life is a veteran, why not participate and share your stories? See the project website for more details.
