VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT
The Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum collects and preserves personal stories and other documents from America’s World War II Veterans, with the purpose of building a lasting legacy of preserving history for generations to come. This History Project collects unpublished written memoirs of personal wartime experiences. We welcome diaries, collections of letters, and photographs that tell the veteran’s story. Maps, drawings, and other documents are also welcome. We don't have to keep your originals. You can scan your documents and e-mail us.
This history project was started in 2010, with the introduction of NASFL Museum founder Allan McElhiney, who was a sailor in WWII. If you are interested in sharing your Veteran's story, or your family's history, please download the MEMOIR KIT below, or visit our Veterans History Project page to see memoir examples.
