Veterans History Project

About the
VHP

Help us create an important national collection of personal histories from our American heroes by taking part in the Veterans History Project (VHP). The Warhawk Air Museum, in conjunction with the Library of Congress, is working tirelessly to video tape as many veterans as possible, so that future generations will understand we owe our freedom to the bravery and sacrifice of those who served.

If you are a veteran, please consider sharing your story. The VHP collects stories from men and women from all branches of service as well as the contributions of civilians, such as war industry workers and medical volunteers, who served in support of the armed forces. For more information, contact us at (208) 465-6446.

We need volunteers! Without volunteers this undertaking would be impossible. We need individuals to interview and/or videotape war veterans and edit the footage. If you are a company, civic organization, government agency, museum, library, college or university you can assist us by providing volunteers, publicity, equipment, or funds for this worthwhile project.

Look through and watch our current collection of interviews below.
