Scope and Contents of the Materials

The StoryCorps-Warmamas Community Archive (2013-2015) is a collection of interviews with enlisted men and women, veterans, their family and friends. The collaboration between StoryCorps and Warmamas is part of StoryCorps' Military Voices Initiative which serves as a platform to allow military families to share their experiences.  Warmamas also places a special emphasis on intervieweing women whose children were deployed  to serve in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. As a repository for personal reflections on the ramifications  of war, the collection includes individual testimonies and helps to document American history.

Biographical Note

The StoryCorps oral histories project began in 2003 as an effort to “provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives.” As of 2015, the project has recorded more than 50,000 interviews with more than 90,000 participants. The work of StoryCorps provides an “invaluable archive for future generations,” and is housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
