Veterans Oral History Project
We invite you to help History Colorado preserve stories of service and sacrifice.
Who? Whether you were born in Colorado, were stationed here during your service, or are a longtime resident, we want to capture your story of military service.
How? Come visit us at the History Colorado Center to share your story in our on-site sound studio or contact our curator to be connected with a volunteer near you. We use the latest technologies and standards to ensure your accounts are preserved for posterity.
You can visit the History Colorado Center in person at 1200 Broadway, Denver, Colorado, or you can contact our curator via phone (303.866.3634) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why? Your story will become part of our military collections and will help document Coloradan military service. We welcome stories from the Korean War to the Global War on Terror, with particular emphasis on service in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Thank you becoming a storyteller of our times!
