Capturing and sharing the tales of women who have served our nation ensures that they are not erased from history. The Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress, where women's stories are also underrepresented, offers a wonderful opportunity for us to partner to tackle this problem. Women Veterans and their supporters can learn how to participate and contribute an oral history and/or other items for their collection. Anyone interested in hearing our stories — students, scholars, family members, history buffs, advocates and more — can search the archives or browse through the project's Experiencing War web features, which include themed collections of digitized stories, such as Women at War, Women of Four Wars and WASP: First in Flight. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
