The Veterans History Project collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and understand the realities of war.
In October 2000, Rep. Eshoo voted to create the VHP at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. The VHP archives its collections at the Library of Congress and makes them available to researchers and the public. This unique American archive is a valuable resource for scholars and an inspiration to future generations.
The VHP also provides training enabling volunteers to conduct interviews and collect historical documents to share the stories of living and deceased veterans and homefront civilians. To learn more about The Veterans History Project and how you can contribute, go to www.loc.gov/vets/.
