In honor of Memorial Day, the Veterans History Project (VHP) at the Library of Congress is urging the family members of veterans to record their loved one’s experience.
We’ve seen scenes like this on the news, but what’s it like if you are on the front lines?
The Library of Congress wants to know.
They’ve collected the stories of 113 veterans, and their families so far, in their Veterans History Project- and they’re looking for more!
“The Veterans History Project is you, your community, and your loved one’s opportunity to reach out to the veterans in your life.”Monica Mohindra, Director of the Veterans History Project (VHP)
While the Veterans History Project is interested in all stories from veterans and their families, they especially are looking for stories from military medical personnel, including public health workers.
Together, these individual voices take us back and help us as a nation understand how we got where we are today and where we are going.
