The Veterans History Project is an initiative of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Created by act of Congress in 2000 (Public Law 106-380), the Project relies on volunteers to collect and preserve first-hand accounts of U.S. veterans who served in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War and the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. U.S. citizen civilians in support roles (USO, war industry workers, flight instructors, medical volunteers, etc.) also are invited to share their stories.
The Santa Clarita Valley Edition is an oral history project of College of the Canyons in association with SCVTV, the SCV Senior Center, and Vets Back to the War Zone.
