An Important Message for Current and Prospective Partners
Thanks to you, our Official Partners, the Veterans History Project
has successfully grown—in seven short years—into
a vibrant collection of over 55,000 individual personal accounts
With that success comes the need to examine our current policies, plans, and
procedures to help us more efficiently and effectively meet our congressional
mandate and mission. It is a welcome challenge, and we are excited about
this opportunity to review and update our short- and long-range plans. To allow us the focus this requires, during the interim, we will not be accepting any new partners.
Current VHP Partners are encouraged to continue operating
as usual, to record the stories of Veterans.
You will find the answers to many of your questions on the VHP
Frequently Asked Questions page. If your question
is urgent, please call the Veterans History Project staff, but
we encourage you to refer to the FAQs or the VHP
Field Kit first.
Prospective VHP Partners are encouraged to record the
interviews of veterans. Our Web site can get you started.
The VHP Field
Kit contains all the information you need to begin recording
stories in easy-to-understand terms, and it can be downloaded
from here. Our
supply of printed Field Kits is limited, but we are able to provide
them in limited quantities. You may request them via email firstname.lastname@example.org or
call our toll-free message line at 888-371-5848.
Your understanding and support makes our success possible.
Thank you for recording and submitting thousands of stories that comprise this
vibrant collection of personal recollections of our nation’s wartime
veterans. We appreciate your understanding, patience, and support as
we create a plan to guide the important future work of VHP and our extended
family of volunteers and veterans. If you have any questions, we encourage
you to refer to the FAQs or
Field Kit first. Should your question not be covered
there, please contact us.
