Westlake Porter Public Library is participating in the Veterans History Project, the mission of which is to collect, preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of American wartime veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans in their own words and better understand the realities of war.

Local veterans are interviewed on DVD-R video and the videos are archived at the Library of Congress with select videos available for viewing online from the Library of Congress.
