Our Military Voices Initiative provides a platform for veterans, service members, and military families to share their stories. In doing so we honor their voices, amplify their experiences, and let them know that we—as a nation—are listening.

Are you a veteran? Would you like to honor a veteran in your life with a StoryCorps interview? Here’s how:

MAKE PLANS TO RECORD IN A CITY ON OUR 2018 TOUR
In 2018, StoryCorps will partner with local public media stations in three cities to record stories of veterans and their families. Reservations for these dates will be available 30 days in advance of the recording dates listed.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on when and how to register to record your story, and prepare for your interview with this collection of suggested questions to ask your conversation partner.

VISIT OUR STORYBOOTH
Make plans to visit our StoryBooth locations in Chicago and Atlanta, where you can designate your interview to be added to the Military Voices collection in the StoryCorps Archive. Here are some great questions to ask an interview partner who has served in the military.

USE THE STORYCORPS APP
You can record anywhere with the StoryCorps App. Veterans and their loved ones can tag their interviews with the keyword “Military Voices”.

LISTEN TO STORIES FROM THE MILITARY VOICES INITIATIVE
Conversations from our Military Voices Initiative, which was launched by StoryCorps in 2012, feature first-person stories from veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, among others. Listen for announcements about special broadcasts this spring on NPR’s Weekend Edition.
