About

The Clemson Veterans Project was started to assist the Library of Congress with it’s own Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center. These projects collect, preserve, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans, as well as U.S. Citizens who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (war industry workers, USO medical personnel, flight instructors, etc.) so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. In order to assist the Library of Congress with this arduous task, Clemson University students conduct interviews and collect other materials accepted by the project then facilitate their digitization for Clemson University records before sending the original materials to the Library of Congress.

This website is currently under construction but the Clemson Veterans Project has collected over twenty-five interviews total and we are in the process of making them all available online through this website.

If you wish to suggest an interviewee or provide assistance for the project, please contact:

Colonel, USAF (Retired), Lance Young – lsyoung@clemson.edu

Daniel Mack – dsmack@g.clemson.edu
