The Library of Congress Veterans History Project collects, preserves, and makes accessible the stories of US veterans so that future generations can learn from their selfless service. This grassroots project relies on people like you to record veterans speaking about their experiences so that the story can be archived in the Library of Congress. Join the veterans History Project and US Representative Kim Schrier for a 1 hour workshop and learn how to become a Veterans History Project Field Correspondent and contribute to our nation’s history by interviewing the veteran in your life. Each veteran you interview will get their own web page on the Veteran's History Project website, www.loc.gov/vets, and their interview will be made accessible both online and at the Library of Congress forever. US Representative Kim Schrier will be making a brief opening statement honoring Washington's veterans. Conducting VHP interviews is fun, rewarding, and a valuable contribution to our nation's history. VHP interviews are also perfect for high school students to put on college applications or for Eagle Scout projects.   All US veterans are eligible to be interviewed for the Veterans History Project regardless of whether they deployed or saw combat. Anyone 15 or older can participate by interviewing a veteran. This workshop is free and open to all members of the public.   5:30PM: Opening remarks by Rep. Schrier, workshop to follow.
