The National Association of American Veterans (NAAV) is a Founding Partner of the Veterans History Project (VHP). On Tuesday, May 24, 2016, VHP Director Col. Robert Patrick, Retired United States Veteran, was schedule to appear on “Washington DC’s NBC4 Midday News to discuss his experiences during his 10 years at the helm of VHP. This discussion also included VHP’s “recent and upcoming outreach efforts, including how to honor veterans this Memorial Day by interviewing community and family members who have served.”
On this Memorial Day, 2016, NAAV celebrates its proud association with VHP. In short, for more than “10 years” VHP has been the source of many collectable military artifacts. To date VHP “contains over 100,000 collections of oral history interviews, photographs, letters, memoirs and other primary sources. Hundreds of researchers have taken advantage of the wealth of information VHP has preserved to create books, articles, films and many other scholarly works.”
