The Veterans' Voices Project is veterans encouraging other veterans to share their story. Through this project, we are able to bridge the gap and connect generations of service members and veterans, as well as being able to educate the public.

Wright State University's Veteran & Military Center has created a project for student veterans to collect oral histories, collaborating with a  local NPR station, WYSO , in Yellow Springs. WSU student veterans conduct radio stories, and send copies of the interviews to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The interviews are also saved in the Wright State University archives.

This is an opportunity to serve again before stories are lost, to help share memories with your family and friends, and to educate the public and connect with other veterans.  Sharing your story is not just about you; it is about all of us coming together and knowing we are not alone no matter what our story is.
