Participate in the Veterans History Project!

The Veterans History Project is your opportunity to teach history from your perspective.

If you would like to participate, call my Canton office, 330-737-1631 today to schedule your interview!

 

So many veterans have a unique story to tell bout their time in the Armed Forces, whether it's a funny story from basic training, a touching memory about a fellow veterans, or the experience of coming home after combat. The Veterans History Prjoect is your chance to have these stories preserved for future generations of Americans.

The Veterans History Project is a program of the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center that "collects, preserves, and makes accesssible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war." You can find more information about the Veterans History Project at https://www.loc.gov/vets/about.html.
