Each year, we recognize organizations that support, celebrate, and provide resources to Veterans, such as VetsInTech and the Southwest Veterans Business Resource Center.

In 2020, we wanted to shine light on the Veterans History Project. Created by an Act of Congress twenty years ago, and managed by the U.S. Library of Congress through the American Folklife Center, the project is a national effort to preserve the contributions and voices of those who served in American wars, beginning with World War I in 1914 to the current Afghan War.

Through personal accounts, written correspondence, photographs, and videos, it is a wonderful reminder of the dedicated service military members have given to this country. Other interesting features include a downloadable resource kit that veterans, students, and supporters to participate in the effort. Veterans can also find details on how to submit personal materials to the project.
