Veterans History Project - 0 views

  •  
    "The Veterans History Project began in 2000 for the purpose of documenting the lives of American WWII Veterans. Later, the project was expanded to any veteran on active duty or who has served in any branch of the Armed Services in any era. Your mission is to interview a veteran, present their narrative in a multimedia presentation, and share it. If it is good enough, the interview and the narrative will be sent to the Library of Congress so any American can learn about the service and sacrifice these veterans have made for our country. More information about this project can be found at http://www.loc.gov/vets/."
