Veterans´ Voices, a veterans homecoming oral history project at Gonzaga University, was established by a small group of Gonzaga faculty and professionals concerned with the preservation of homecoming narratives of American veterans. Through conversations with returning veterans, it became clear to us that coming home from war is a unique experience that needs to be both honored and remembered by local communities. We created an archive to preserve veterans’ descriptions of homecoming, to both honor and raise awareness of these experiences.
