This screenshot provided by the National World War II Museum shows the home page of the National World War II Museum's new online archive project, in New Orleans, Friday, Dec. 16, 2016. Executives at the museum say creating a vast online collection of 9,000 existing oral and written histories will take longer than the war was fought: 10 years and $11 million dollars. The task is enormous: thousands of hours of audio and video must be handled and millions of words transcribed. Ultimately, all these firsthand accounts of Pearl Harbor, the D-Day invasion, Germany's surrender, Hiroshima, the homefront and more will be online. (National World War II Museum via AP)
