Honor America's Wartime Veterans

September 6, 2011

On September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks on our nation, America will pause to honor and remember those who died.  

This is also an appropriate time for us to honor those who have fought to defend America.  We can do so by collecting and preserving the stories of their combat experiences from World War II to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  These oral histories will be archived at the Veterans History Project (VHP) at the Library of Congress, and they will be made available to scholars, historians, and the American public.

Please help NCRF honor America's wartime veterans, who have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom, by volunteering to interview and/or transcribe their stories for the VHP.  Effective October 1, 2011, point 25 (.25) Professional Development Credits (PDC) will be awarded for each VHP history transcribed. 

Students -   You can earn a free NCRA student membership by transcribing two histories.  Don't miss out on this great opportunity!

For complete details on PDCs and information on how you can participate in the Veterans History Project, please contact Beth Kilker, NCRF's Oral Histories Coordinator, at 703/556-6272, ext. 174, or at oralhistories@ncrahq.org.
