The Veteran's History Project of the Library of Congress was signed into law in October 2000 and is charged to capture first hand accounts of U.S. war veterans from World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf war and Afghanistan and Iraq. It collects not only oral interviews but also memoirs, letters, diaries, photographs, and other original materials from veterans of these conflicts and makes them available online. Learn more by visiting this Library of Congress Website.
Here is a link to several veteran's accounts that were selected by Library of Congress staff as among their favorites. Staff Favorites.
