Contribute to the Veterans History Project

Memorial Day, May 30th, WPA Posters (Library of Congress)According to the US Veterans Administration, every three minutes a veteran of World War II dies. That means that some 430 memories of that conflict go missing each and every day. You can help preserve important memories of WWII and other conflicts by participating in the Library of Congress’s Veterans History Project. The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress maintains and provides access to the collected materials.

You’ll find step-by-step instructions for taking part in this very important endeavor at the Veterans History Project website or you can download this PDF. Why not make it a class project or a group endeavor at the local library too? Help put the memory back in Memorial Day.
