      About The Veterans History Project

      In 2000 the Veterans History Project was originated by the U.S.
      Congress (public law 106-380) when the Library of Congress was
      mandated to collect the stories of veterans and civilians who
      contributed to the liberties we all enjoy in the United States. A war
      record is not required.



      The need to start collecting these narratives was realized as these
      memories became more precious with the passing of World War II veterans.
      A majority of interviews come from veteran reunions held locally. To
      discover interview locations search the LOC. The BVTF summarizes the
      taped experiences on a FAX sent to the LOC for data entry on their web
      site - www.loc.gov/vets <http://www.loc.gov/vets>



      It is vital for future generations to know about these individual
      efforts that made important contributions to protect the liberties we
      hold so dear and take for granted.



      How You Can Help



      The BVTF is seeking volunteers locally to help in the promotion and
      collection of these historical interviews about individual patriotic
      efforts for our country's behalf.

      There is no government funding for this program, funds come from local
      donors so all contributions are graciously accepted. Not enough talented
      volunteers are forthcoming so this too is a real need.
