Veterans History Project oral history recordings, 1999-2016 (VIS 201)
The Veterans History Project oral history recordings consist of video and audio recorded interviews with veterans who served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts, and civilians who served in their support. The interviews include a broad range of information about each interviewee’s experiences, including family background and upbringing; education; military training; combat experience; unit histories; daily life in the military; officer and enlisted interactions; separation from the military; and post-service life and activities. Interviews are being added to this website on a continuous basis and online access to full transcripts for all interviews will be available at a later date.
The interviews preserved at the Kenan Research Center are created in partnership with the Veterans History Project, an initiative of the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center. The History Center is a founding partner and continues to conduct veteran interviews with the invaluable assistance of the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association. For more information or to schedule an interview, contact the Veterans History Project at VeteransHistoryProject@AtlantaHistoryCenter.com.
