Honor our Veterans. Record their histories!
VA and the Library of Congress Veterans History Project have a special message for all Americans this Veterans Day – Honor our Veterans. Record their histories! By recording the oral histories of our Veterans, we preserve the human face of American history for generations to come and honor those men and women who swore to protect and defend the United States. Each day as Veterans Day approaches, the VA home page will introduce you to veterans’ oral histories from the digital archive of the Library of Congress – one from each state and territory. Interested in a Veteran from your state? Just click on the map. Each day we will reveal five more states until Veterans Day. To find out more about the Veterans History Project and how you can submit your veteran’s oral history to the Library of Congress, go to www.loc.gov/vets. Do something special to honor Veterans on Veterans Day, record a Veteran’s history!
