“The Veterans History Project” – April 8, 2014

A project of the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, the Veterans History Project collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.  The archive is made up of the individual narratives of over 90,000 American veterans.

Ms. Megan Harris, Senior Reference Specialist, provided an overview of the Veterans History Project and detailed some specific collections that engage issues of interest to the Bar Association, including PTSD, benefits, adjustment to civilian life and the impact of service on families.
