Veterans History Project
Since its creation by Congress in 2000, the Veterans History Project has been collecting the oral histories of American men and women who served in the wars of the 20th and 21st centuries. More than 2,200 of these stories can be seen or heard on the website—most accompanied by one or more photographs of the veteran. You can search the database by name, rank, service unit, etc., or browse by name, conflict, or branch of service. If you're a veteran, or have a friend or family member who served, be sure to find out how to participate.
