Veterans History Project

You can be part of the Library of Congress's Veterans History by donating interviews or historical documents. Donated collections can be first-hand oral histories, memoirs, photographs, letters, diaries, official separation documents and other documents from WWI through current conflicts.

For deceased veterans, you may submit documents like a collection of photographs, letters, diaries and memoirs. If so, you'll need to complete a biographical data form and a release form for the deceased veteran.

You should visit their website for information on guidelines. Or call toll-free at 888-371-5848.

DO NOT mail (by the U.S. Postal Service) any materials. USPS security may damage your information. Send materials by FedEx, UPS or deliver in person to:
