Launched by an act of Congress in 2000, the Veterans History Project is a volunteer effort "to collect and preserve stories of wartime service." The project is overseen by the U.S. Library of Congress's American Folklife Center. Here you can search the database of interviews with American veterans by keyword or browse the collection alphabetically by name, state of residence, race/ethnicity, war, or branch of the military. Some interviews are available in the form of audio and video files (RealPlayer plug-in required). Also provided are links to related resources.
