Every Veteran has a story to tell, and the Voices of Veterans Oral History Program seeks to record these stories of courage and service to inspire Texans for generations to come.

The Texas Veterans Land Board is a natural host for the program -- managing nine Texas State Veterans Homes that provide long-term care for Veterans of all generations, many of whom are eager to tell their story.

Voices of Veterans represents the first time a Texas state agency has ventured into the field of oral history for Veterans. These stories are recorded and presented to the Veteran to have and share with their family.

The interviews are also permanently archived at the Texas General Land Office, where they join the historic documents of other Texas heroes such as Sam Houston, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Barret Travis. They are also available to researchers, historians, genealogists and the general public.
