Veterans Voices Project
Presented in partnership with The Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS)
November 5 - 28, 2021
Listen to the oral histories of Staten Island veterans and honor their immeasurable contribution by connecting with a pop-up exhibition by the Veterans Voices Project. Presented in partnership with The Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS) Veteran Voices Project (VVP), an oral history initiative designed to preserve the stories of NYC’s Veterans.
The Veteran Voices Project (VVP) is an oral history initiative designed to preserve the stories of NYC’s Veterans across all military branches and service eras. Administered by the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services, the project collects interviews with New York City veterans in an online database. The mission of the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services is to connect, mobilize, and empower New York City’s Veteran community to foster purpose-driven lives for New York City Service Members – past and present.
Together, we introduce an audio library of Veteran stories across all military branches and service eras in a shared mission to honor our local heroes and generate meaningful shared experiences to deepen
understanding of ourselves and each other.
We are proud to bring the voices of Staten Island’s diverse Veteran community into the Staten Island Museum and share these important stories.
