Description

Millions of American people were involved in World War II whether it be in combat or at home; unfortunately, as time progresses, there are less and less veterans that are able to share their stories and experiences. The stories of these veterans are crucial, especially in the study of history, because their personal narrations are left out of textbooks. The Oral History Project allows students to dive deeper and fill in the gaps that historians have left by leaving out such crucial aspects of major events such as World War II in the Pacific.
