Preserving Stories of Service for Future Generations
The Library of Congress American Folklife Center and DHHS’ Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) invite you to join in an important national project — the Veterans History Project (VHP). The mission of the VHP is to collect the memories, accounts, and documents of war veterans from World War I, World War II, the Korean, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf Wars, and to preserve these stories of experience and service for future generations. This project will honor our nation’s war veterans and those who served in support of them and create a lasting legacy of recorded interviews and other documents chronicling veterans’ and other citizens’ wartime experiences and how those experiences affected their lives and America itself.
The RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) would like to do its part to preserve these memories by inviting veterans to participate in the VHP. We are looking for wartime veterans and civilians who are willing to have their story recorded, submitted to the Library of Congress, and available for future generations.
