Veterans History Project

Tell Us Your Stories

If you or someone you know is a U.S. veteran, then you may be able to help White Oak Library District collect and preserve war stories and experiences as a part of the Library of Congress Veterans History Project.

For more information, please contact Beverly Krakovec (815) 552-4225  bkrakovec@whiteoaklibrary.org

Since 2014, the Library has been interviewing American veterans who served in conflicts from World War II to the present. The original recordings are sent to the American Folk-life Center while a copy is kept at the White Oak Library District and made available on this webpage.
