Veterans Oral History Program

The Voices of the Past Speak to the Future Veterans Oral History Project is an intergenerational, interdisciplinary program for high school students that allows them to interact with Veterans and discuss aspects of service to the Nation. Additionally, the program trains the students to conduct and record oral history interviews and prepare their interviews for preservation in historical archives. 

Veterans of all branches of the military are invited to participate. Oral histories from Army Veterans are submitted for preservation in the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center. All other Veteran interviews are submitted to appropriate historical organizations for preservation.
