Every soldier has a story...Here is where the story is told

Welcome to the West Point Center for Oral History, an online archive dedicated to recording the story of the American soldier, in war and peace. The Center officially opened online in 2011. We are in the process of loading the hundreds of video interviews in our collection, ranging from veterans of World War I through veterans of the nation's most recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Enjoy the interviews as education, as entertainment, as enlightenment, as inspiration.
