WASHINGTON (AP) - The Library of Congress is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Veterans History Project, which preserves the personal accounts of U.S. war veterans.

On Thursday, the library launched a new installment of its online series, “Experiencing War.” It includes audio and video recollections, correspondence, photographs, and excerpts from the diaries and memoirs of those who served.

On Friday, U.S. Rep. Donna Edwards hosts a reception at Joint Base Andrews near Washington to honor veterans from Maryland’s 4th Congressional District who participated in the project.

The Maryland Democrat says hearing veterans’ experiences firsthand can help future generations better understand the realities of war.
