Starting in June 2010, Don Moore began interviewing veterans for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project. It’s the largest collection of veterans’ stories in the world.
His stories will not only appear in the Sun newspaper distributed in Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota counties on Florida’s West Coast, on the Don Moore’s War Tales website, but now these stories will be kept forever in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.
Veterans History Project stories are accessible to thousands who visit the Library of Congress each year. Many collections make their way into public programs and high school and college curriculum. They help form an unparalled resource for historians and scholars around the world.
The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project in 2000 as part of the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center. Its mission, according to government literature, is “…to collect, preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of American wartime veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.”
