The Library of Congress Veterans History Project (VHP) has issued new 60 second TV broadcast Public Service Announcements (PSAs) in English and in Spanish that urge the public to record their memories of their deceased veteran and to submit photos, diaries or journals of their deceased veteran to the Veterans History Project.
The PSA is hosted by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise. Mr. Sinise is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner and has been closely associated with many veteran’s charity groups.
“It’s the story of our lives,” says Mr. Sinise about the Veterans History Project.

Veterans History Project was created in 2000 by Congress as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. VHP’s mission is to collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. VHP relies on volunteers to interview veterans to contribute to the permanent library collection by submitting audio and video interviews along with documentation.
