Spanning from World War 1 to today, the American Folklife Center’s Veteran’s History Project is preserving incredible war stories for generations to come.
Today, we regularly hear about war through headlines across our screens. But most of us will never experience the reality of that environment. As a result, a concentrated effort to preserve the experiences of active duty becomes essential to the story of American history. One such initiative, the Veteran’s History Project, is attempting to do just that.
At Findmypast, we’ve made the index to this incredible project available for family history enthusiasts to explore.https://www.findmypast.com/blog/family-records/veteran-stories
