Library of Congress Veterans History Project Web Site


The National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) and the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) have partnered with the United States Library of Congress in an effort to protect and preserve the rich and extensive history of U.S. veterans. Through a project sponsored by the Library of Congress, men and women who have served the United States in a time of war have recorded their amazing personal stories for posterity. Extending back to World War I, these recorded personal histories provide an in-depth and intimate look at the struggle and sacrifice that our veterans have given on behalf of America, and their stories chronicle the efforts they took to defend and preserve the freedoms we enjoy every day.

Before researchers can fully preserve and document the heroic stories of our veterans, the recordings have to be transcribed. This is where members of NCRA have been presented with a great opportunity to participate in the effort to protect the history of America's veterans. Through the NCRF/NCRA partnership with the Library of Congress, you are being offered the opportunity to transcribe the recordings of our nation's veterans and make them available to researchers and to the American public.

In addition to the reward of delivering a veteran's voice to America, you get other benefits for this educational endeavor. You will receive 0.25 PDCs for each transcription completed, at no cost to you, and you can earn up to a maximum of 1.0 PDCs for completing four transcriptions within your three year certification period.  Of course, we encourage you to do as many as you can.

Please help deliver the recollections of our nation's veterans to everyone. This is your chance to play a significant role in guarding the record of America's heroes. Please join NCRF and the Library of Congress in making sure that America never forgets those who put their life on the line for the United States.
