Veterans History Project Nearing Milestone

In its 15th year, the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project (VHP), which seeks to gather oral history recordings, photos, letters and more from veterans of all conflicts, has topped 96,000 remembrances and hopes to reach the 100,000 mark by the end of this year. More than half of the materials come from World War II veterans, but everything from Korea to Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan is represented. The VHP website atwww.loc.gov/vets/kit.html offers tips and materials for conducting oral history interviews of veterans for inclusion.
