Is there a deadline for participating in, or submitting materials to, the Veterans History Project?

No. The Veterans History Project (VHP) is an ongoing program and continues to be supported by the U.S. Congress. While there is no deadline to submit materials, we encourage you to submit collections to VHP as soon as possible after you compile them. Veterans and their families are eager for their interviews and other materials to be included in the Library of Congress; therefore, the sooner items are submitted, the sooner we are able to process them into the Library’s collections.

Please note: If you participate in VHP via a volunteer organization, e.g., school, university, DAR, VFW, etc., we will not be able to provide you with the status of your collection until we receive your materials from that organization.
