San Diego Daily Transcript: Veterans History Project preserves military memories

May 26, 2014

Sarah March never had the chance to hear about her grandfather’s Navy experience, but thanks to the Veterans History Project, her daughter won’t miss out on listening to her mother’s Navy stories.

The Veterans History Project, which began in 2000, is part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, and any member of Congress can participate by connecting veterans with volunteers who will record their experiences. The goal is to collect personal accounts of American war veterans to serve as a resource for historians. The program was launched in San Diego a few months ago.

March participated in the Veterans History Project, a nationwide effort that’s being led locally by San Diego Rep. Scott Peters. She works as a field representative in Peters’ San Diego office.
