The Veterans History Project states: “Every veteran has his or her own war, and each is a custodian of a unique story and memories. At the Veterans History Project, we treasure the personal narratives sent to us by veterans from all wars.

Visit Experiencing War to see excerpts from the Veterans History Project’s second book of stories Forever a Soldier: Unforgettable Stories of Wartime Service and to search for veterans by name, conflict or era, and branch of service. These personal accounts of service men and women who are currently serving our country and others who have served in every major war back to World War 1 contain a deep and heartfelt experience of war.  Additional stories of soldiers coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan can be found in Redeployment by Phil Klay.
