On December 10th, 2010, the Voices of Freedom conducted their first interview at an office in Woodridge, VA. Over the last ten years, the VOF have conducted 490 interviews with veterans of wars and conflicts from World War II to the current War on Terror. From the beaches of Normandy, to the jungles of Vietnam, to the deserts of the Middle East, they have captured and preserved unique stories of Americans in wartime. Combat veterans, first responders on 9/11, and civilians who played a critical part in the war effort, such as “Rosie the Riveters”, and USO dancers have all sat down to tell their stories.
In the beginning, interviews were conducted in conference rooms, spare rooms at VFW and American Legion Halls, and inside a classroom at the Prince William County Public Safety Academy. In 2014, the VOF received a generous donation which allowed them to purchase a 36-foot RV that was modified into a mobile recording studio, allowing the “show” to be taken on the road. With the addition of the RV, the VOF now travels to various events, such as airshows and other military themed events to record firsthand accounts of sacrifice and courage.
If you are a wartime veteran or served on the home front during a time of war, we want to hear your story. More importantly, your family wants to hear your story, especially those who haven’t yet been born. If you are an organization that would like to host the VOF mobile recording studio, we’d like to hear from you as well. Email Dennis at email@example.com to arrange an interview, or to have the RV brought to your event.
