National World War II Reunion and the Veterans History Project

Veterans Sharing Stories

During the National World War II Reunion, held May 27-30, 2004, volunteer interviewers traveled up and down the National Mall with hand-held tape recorders, capturing the stories of the World War II veterans attending the festivities. The photos in this gallery capture scenes of volunteer interviewers recording these stories and interacting with WWII veterans and their families throughout the weekend.
