The Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans, as well as U.S. Citizens who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (war industry workers, USO medical personnel, flight instructors, etc.) so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. In order to assist the Veterans History Project with this arduous task, Clemson University students conduct interviews and collect other materials from local veteran’s and alumni, facilitate their digitization for Clemson University records, and send the original materials to the Library of Congress.
