The Veterans History Project Would Love to Hear Your Story

veterans history project


The Veterans History Project (VHP) of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center is primarily an oral history program that collects and preserves the firsthand interviews of America’s wartime veterans. VHP relies on volunteers, both individuals and organizations, throughout the nation to contribute veterans’ stories to VHP. In addition to audio- and video-recorded interviews, VHP accepts memoirs and collections of original photographs, letters, diaries, maps and other historical documents from World War I through current conflicts.

The DC Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs will be conducting VHP interviews every week.  If you are a veteran – we would love to hear your story!  Once your interview is complete, we will submit the recording to the Library of Congress for preservation.  Please give us a call at 202-724-5454 to schedule an interview
