Veteran's History Project
Sedona Public Library proudly participates in the Library of Congress Veteran's History
The Project collects first-hand accounts of U.S. Veterans from the following wars:
- World War I (1914-1920)
- World War II (1939-1946)
- Korean War (1950-1955)
- Vietnam War (1961-1975)
- Persian Gulf War (1990-1995)
- Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts (2001-present)
In addition, those U.S. citizen civilians who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (such as war industry workers, USO workers, flight instructors, medical volunteers, etc.) are also invited to share their valuable stories.
The Library has helped to preserve the experiences of over two-hundred individuals, whose stories are an important part of our community and national history.
The interviews, which can last up to 1 ½ hours, take place at the Library in the private Quiet Study room with a camera person and a trained interviewer. A DVD of the interview is available from the Reference desk for in-library viewing. Another is sent to the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress for archiving and public availability. Each participant also receives a DVD of their personal interview, which can become an important family legacy.
