The Veterans History Project has more than 800 recorded interviews with veterans of WWII, the Korean and Vietnam Wars and eras, as well as other military actions overseas. There also are interviews with civilians who served in support roles. The interviews cover more than just combat experiences, as they delve into education, families, post-service life and a lot more. All the interviews preserved at the Atlanta History Center are in partnership with the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center. So whether you can attend this lecture or not, think about contacting the speaker to set up an appointment for an interview for yourself or a loved one.
