Since 2002, PCN has gathered more than 350 interviews with veterans from all branches of the U.S. Military. PCN is proud to share these stories of brave women and men in various audio and visual formats. PCN's “Voices of Veterans” series is a tribute to the men and women of Pennsylvania who courageously protected our country. These short interviews offer a rare glimpse into the experiences that only those who served can tell. While our award-winning “World War: In Their Own Words” series concentrated on the personal wartime experiences of veterans serving during World War II, “Voices of Veterans” expands to include oral histories from the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. For historical preservation and educational use, PCN has donated a majority of the interviews from the series "Voices of Veterans" to the National Veterans’ History Project housed in the Library of Congress at Washington, D.C. Read more about our "Voices of Veterans" tribute series that details the exploits of Pennsylvania veterans below.
