We Must Always Remember
Respect and Honor
The Veterans of World War II
An ongoing special project locates and records Veterans' Oral Histories so that an authentic and detailed account of their experiences, and time honored sacrifices, are preserved for posterity.
AAFHA’s Oral History Project now includes 41 Veteran’s Histories. We are currently making 18 of these available to the public for a donation of $25 each.
These Oral Histories are transcribed and placed into spiral-bound booklets, using all acid-free materials. They are comprised of transcribed, taped interviews or diaries, with photographs, maps, papers and letters that illustrate the text.
For more information on our Oral Histories, please contact: Gen. Wayne Placek:
