Share Your Story

If you would like to share your experiences from your service in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or Merchant Marines, or share the history of a loved one, we would appreciate the opportunity to meet you and record your contribution to our nation’s history.

How It Works

If you would like to be interviewed, please contact us to schedule an appointment. Most of the interviews take place at the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C. and at select military reunions around the country.  We do not have the resources to travel for an individual interview.

The interview lasts 30-60 minutes.  We are looking to capture the highlights of your service – rather than a complete biographical sketch.

After your interview, your story will be edited (the finished product will be 5-10 minutes in length) and archived on one of our web sites. This ensures the stories are available on demand in perpetuity. For this reason, we do not provide DVD copies of the interview.  There is no charge for this service.
