Chris Rich, manager of the Batavia branch of the Clermont County Public Library recently visited a virtual meeting of the Cincinnati Eastside Rotary to discuss the Veterans History Project.

The Veterans History Project collects, preserves, and makes accessible, the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project in 2000. 

AARP is the founding corporate sponsor of the Veterans History Project.  In addition to providing initial major funding for the Project, AARP also spread the word to its legion of volunteers and almost 37 million members, encouraging them to get involved.  Numerous state chapters have also been involved in the Project.

The Clermont County Public Library interviews local veterans as part of the to support the Veterans History Project. Interviews have been added to their collection as well as submitted to the Library of Congress.
