Preserving Stories of Local Veterans​

Local veterans and civilians who served with the United States military are invited to record their stories free of charge with the Broward County Historical Archives at Main Library​. Each veteran’s recorded interview also becomes a permanent part the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center; the interview will be cataloged and made available to researchers and the public.

Tell us your story! Library staff will videotape oral history interviews by appointment, contact Afua Ferdnance at 954-357-6282 or
Other ways to participate
