Abstract: This article describes the NEH grant in conjunction with Wake Technical Community College's services for veterans. The article explains that "the school will begin a two-year project to research and catalog the experiences of Triangle veterans and use those stories in the classroom. In the first phase, students and faculty at Wake Tech will seek out and record stories from veterans to create oral histories that will be housed at the State Archives and made available to the public. . . . The project, titled 'America’s Wars: Individual Experience and Collective Memories,' will be underwritten by a grant of nearly $100,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities."
