Can I obtain my military service records or get information about my medals and decorations from the Veterans History Project?

No. The Veterans History Project is a voluntary oral history program and does not handle veterans’ official service records, benefits or healthcare. Please see the VHP Field Kit for a list of helpful resources, or contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
