Veterans History Project PSA

“Dear PoP,

The Veterans History Project is a Congressionally mandated program at the Library of Congress that collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of America’s wartime veterans. To date, the Project has collected more than 70,000 stories, nearly all collected by volunteers. This Veterans Day, the Veterans History Project urges Americans to pledge to record the story of at least one veteran in their community or neighborhood for the Library of Congress. More than 1,000 veterans die every day in the United States, so these are important elements of history to capture before they disappear forever. People can take the pledge and learn more here.”

Sounds like a great project.
