Wanted to express my deepest appreciation to all the veterans who have served our country to keep us free!
Today I thought I’d mention the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress. From their website:
The Veterans History Project (VHP) of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center is primarily an oral history program that collects and preserves the first-hand interviews of America’s wartime veterans. VHP relies on volunteers, both individuals and organizations, throughout the nation to contribute veterans’ stories to VHP. In addition to audio- and video-recorded interviews, VHP accepts memoirs, collections of original photographs and letters, diaries, maps, and other historical documents from World War I through current conflicts.
The Project also recognizes the services of peacetime veterans and others who have “professionally supported war efforts.”
In our family, we have veterans of the Army, the Navy, the Coast Guard, the Air Force and the Marine Corps as it happens – a big shoutout and thank you to all branches of the service.
