The Veterans' Voices Project is veterans encouraging other veterans to share their story. It began with the idea that veterans talking to other veterans about their military experience could help bridge generations. More than four years and 200 interviews later, it remains the Veteran and Military Center’s flagship community program.
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.
Wright State University's Veteran and Military Center has created a project for student veterans to collect oral histories, collaborating with a local NPR station WYSO in Yellow Springs. Wright State 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 and on the WYSO website.

If you are interested in working with the project or if you have questions contact the Veterans' Voices Project by email at email@example.com or stop in the Veteran and Military Center (131 Allyn Hall).
Wright State will be offering a Veterans’ Voices Oral History class during Spring terms. The class will be offered on Thursdays from 5-7:40 p.m. To register for the class, search HST 4870 on WINGS Express. If you complete the class, you will have an opportunity to work at the VMC and continue their work with the project.
All veterans have a story to tell. Whether or not you think you did anything during your time in the military, it is important to record it. If you are interested in being interviewed for the project contact the Veterans' Voices Project by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (937) 775-5550. We will arrange a time and date for your interview at Wright State. If you live in the Dayton area, but cannot come to Wright State, we may be able to come to you.
