Veterans History Project
The Veterans History Project: Sponsored by the U.S. Congress (elsewhere I’ve seen Library of Congress), AARP, and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Service Trust.
The Veterans History Project focuses on World War I (1914-1920), World War II (1939-1946), and the Korean (1950-1955), Vietnam (1961-1975), and Persian Gulf (1990-1995) wars. It includes all participants in those wars—men and women, civilian and military. It documents the contributions of civilian volunteers, support staff, and war industry workers as well as the experiences of military personnel from all ranks and all branches of service—the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. The Project greatly values and appreciates veterans’ stories from additional combat arenas and those received will be processed as resources allow.
