Since 2002, the AFS has been engaged in a partnership with the Veterans History Project, an effort of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress originally supported by the US Congress and AARP. AFS provides folklorists and oral historians to lead workshops throughout the country for community groups of all kinds on collecting the personal experience stories and oral histories of US military veterans of war (and those civilians who supported them). During this time, AFS-managed folklorists and oral historians have led more than 360 workshops in 40 of the 50 states that have served some 8,300 participants.

The most recent Veterans History Project informational video is available on the Library of Congress Facebook page at www.facebook.com/libraryofcongress?ref=ts&ref=ts
