Veterans Interview Project

The Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress

The story of each veteran is important.  Share your story.  Sit down with an experienced interviewer at the Airborne & Special Operations Museum to record your experience.  This video recording will be archived and preserved in the Library of Congress so that future generations may hear directly from you and other veterans, and that they may better understand the realities of war.  A copy of the interview will be mailed to you, and one will be kept in the ASOM archives.  Please contact Catherine at (910) 643-2773 or events@asomf.org to schedule an interview.  All veterans are invited.

The project at the ASOM invites all veterans, regardless of time served or involvement in a conflict.  The project at the Library of Congress collects first-hand accounts of U.S. Veterans from the following wars:
WWII (1939-1946)
Korean War (1950-1955)
Vietnam War (1961-1965)
Persian Gulf War (1990-1995)
Afghanistan and Iraq Conflicts (2001-present)

The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project in 2000 as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
