Ken Burns's THE WAR

Explores the history and horror of WWII from an American perspective. The film focuses on a handful of men and women from four American towns, but could have aimed cameras at any town in America for deeply personal stories about WWII. WXXI is collecting stories from our community about the war. You can search these local stories as well as similar ones from across the country.

The Library of Congress' Veterans History Project

Commissioned by Congress in 2000 and supported by volunteer interviewers, the Veterans History Project collects and archives the personal recollections of U.S. wartime veterans—and homefront civilians who supported America’s armed forces—to honor their service and share their stories with current and future generations. Preferred Care is the project's official partner.
