About the Program

The Voices of Veterans program records the stories of Texas men and women who served our nation to preserve their memories for future generations. Oral history interviews provide future historians with undiscovered knowledge about historical events such as battles or military actions.

Every veteran has a story to tell, and this program will ensure these stories of courage and service can inspire Texans for generations to come.

Veteran interviews are permanently archived in the Office of Veterans Records at the Texas General Land Office. The archives are made available to researchers, historians, genealogists and the general public to inspire future generations and remind us of our veterans’ sacrifices.
