Veterans History Project

How many of you know about the Veterans History Project?

I am constantly meeting people who say that they've thrown away war letters, uniforms and other memorabilia because they didn't know what else to do with it. As generations pass these items become lost to a box in the basement, attic or, most sadly, the garbage.

Well, the Veterans History Project, a program by the Library of Congress, is interested in many of the collections and other items that you may find in boxes, attics or at yard sales.

Their website is very informative about what they accept and what they don't. Visit for more information.

I am planning to send 10 letters from my POW-relay collection to the Veterans History Project to ensure preservation of the materials far beyond my years. Join me in preserving our veterans history.
