Who conducts the interview?

Individual volunteers, and volunteers from organizations around the country, interview veterans and collect first person narratives. Any individual or organization may participate, including family members and friends of veterans, students age 15 or older, high school and university educators, authors, veterans service organizations, places of worship, retirement communities, Scout troops, local businesses and professional associations. Resources are available to teach organizational groups how to conduct VHP interviews including free, instructor-led workshops which can be requested for your group by emailing vohp@loc.gov.
