Disclaimer on Veterans History Project Collection Materials
The Library of Congress does not verify the accuracy of the
accounts described herein by participants in the Veterans History
Project. Individual stories are voluntarily submitted to the
Veterans History Project and are placed in the Library's permanent
collections as received. These histories are the personal recollections
and perspectives of participating individuals and are not intended
as a substitute for an official record of the federal government
or of military service.
The Veterans History Project minimum requirements for collection submissions have evolved over time. To meet the Congressional mandate and the standards of a research collection, VHP requires that current collection submissions be at least 30 minutes in length and adhere to current Media and Format Standards [PDF: 69KB]
Some collections held by the Veterans History Project that are under 30 minutes in length, and/or do not meet current Media and Format Standards [PDF: 69KB] may be deemed "at risk." They are digitized to ensure stability and preservation. VHP will continue to provide access to previously donated collections that do not meet current standards.
