Missouri Veteran Stories
Full-length Veteran interviews are available at The State Historical Society of Missouri (see inventory of interviews [PDF] here). If you are looking for a specific Veteran's interview page, please check the Veterans History Project database. Please note though that it often takes six months or more from the day the interview is sent to the Library of Congress until the interview/biographical page is available from the national Veterans History Project database.
