Tulare County Library Collecting Oral Histories From Vietnam War Veterans

The Tulare County Library is working with the Library of Congress' Veterans History Project to record Veteran’s history. The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project as an effort to "collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal accounts of American war Veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war."

We can help you tell your story by either interviewing you or recording you as you tell stories about your time in service. If you are not comfortable with being filmed we can also help you send in a memoir, diary, or journal or photographs or letters.

The Veterans History Project keeps all the originals sent to them. The Tulare County Library will also keep copies in its History Room collection located at the Visalia Branch Library. If you have any questions, please contact Faythe at 559-713-2706.
