Preserving Stories of Service for Future Generations
The Library of Congress American Folklife Center and DHA’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) invite you to join in an important national project — the Veterans History Project. The mission of the Veterans History Project is to collect the memories, accounts, and documents of war veterans from World War I, World War II, the Korean, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf Wars, and to preserve these stories of experience and service for future generations. This project will honor our nation’s war veterans and those who served in support of them and create a lasting legacy of recorded interviews and other documents chronicling veterans’ and other citizens’ wartime experiences and how those experiences affected their lives and America itself.
The RSVP Program would like to do its part to preserve these memories by inviting veterans to join the Veterans History Project here in Sacramento. We are looking for veterans and civilians who are willing to be interviewed on videotape. This will be a very important contribution we can give our future generations. Enlist now and share your experiences!
Please call (916) 875-4460 [Fax: (916) 875-3799] for more information or to sign-up. For information about the Veteran’s History Project, go to http://www.loc.gov/folklife/vets/.
