Veterans History Project was honored to be a part of the
National World War II Reunion. Throughout the
four-day reunion, the Veterans History Project volunteers
collected hundreds of stories on the National Mall (using tape-recorders)
and in the pavilion (using laptop computers).
each day, special programs presented compelling accounts
from a variety of topics, including POWs, Tuskegee
Airmen, Code Talkers, Women in Wartime, and D-Day veterans.
These panels have been preserved and are now available
as Webcasts (select from the menu on the right). Also, we
are adding photos each day, giving a glimpse of the activities
of the weekend. Please come back often to view more images.
The Veterans History Project wants your story!

of them. VHP's collections are a growing
part of the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center,
