A great resource for examining oral histories as a primary source and a fantastic way to engage students about veterans and veterans' issues.

 

"As American troops continue to return home from Iraq and Afghanistan, StoryCorps, the national non-profit oral history project, has created the Military Voices Initiative, a year-long program to record the stories of veterans and their families as they talk about life, family, citizenship and love as the wars end and they re-enter civilian life. StoryCorps’ Military Voices Initiative aims to record interviews from nearly 1,500 participants.

This project amplifies their important stories and lets them know that we—as a nation—are listening.  A select number of interviews will be edited for national broadcast and aired on NPR’s Weekend Edition beginning November 10."
