WHY DO IT? Watch this video to learn more about why participating in the Missouri Veterans History Project is important.

Do you only interview WWII veterans?

No, Veterans from all wars and conflicts are welcome to participate.

How long is the typical interview?

The Library of Congress Veterans History Project requires interviews to be at least 30 minutes long. Some will be much longer. The length of the interview is guided by the Veterans as they tell their stories.

Share a Story


There is no cost to the veteran to participate. Interviews are conducted at various locations where we have volunteer chapters.

Where do the interviews go after they are conducted?

All Veterans receive a video recording of their interview. In addition, all interviews become a part of the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. where they will be preserved and made available to researchers and the public. Learn about the Veterans History Project at the national level. A copy may also be kept at The State Historical Society of Missouri.

How do I sign up to be interviewed?

Contact us through mail, e-mail or telephone, and we will arrange for an interview. Please be sure to include your name, phone number, address and/or e-mail address when you contact us. A Missouri Veterans History Project volunteer will contact you within two weeks of your request.

How do I nominate a veteran to be interviewed?

Before you nominate a Veteran, please get the Veteran’s approval. Some veterans do not wish to share their stories for various reasons, and we want to respect their wishes. Once you have the approval, send the Veteran’s name, address and phone number, along with your contact information, to MVHP by mail or e-mail.
