Life-Altering Moments Mission Hurry Up and Wait

Every veteran has his or her own war, and each is custodian of a unique story and memories. At the Veterans History Project, we treasure the personal narratives sent to us by veterans from all wars. Vivid as if they happened yesterday, these heartfelt accounts make us laugh, cry and remember. The stories are not a formal history of war, but a treasure trove of individual feelings and personal recollections. As we build this unprecedented collection documenting both veterans and civilians and their EXPERIENCES of war, we will introduce new themes on the website. Please join our effort by sending us your own recollections and memories. Each contribution makes this project all the more priceless. Learn how you can participate in The Veterans History Project.
