Students who participated in the Veterans Oral History Project thanked and honored the veterans who participated in the interviews by hosting an open house at WMS in May. In total, students in the Veterans PLT conducted seventeen interviews of local veterans that will be submitted to the Library of Congress for publication. The mission of this project is to collect the oral histories and personal experiences of veterans who have served in the U.S. military. These interviews, as part of the American Folk Life Center's permanent collection, will be made available as primary sources to be used by historians and students.
