The Military Oral History Project is a past initiative of VMI's John A. Adams '71 Center for Military History and Strategic Analysis.  The project gave VMI cadets enrolled in military history courses the opportunity to interview veterans from various eras.  The archived interviews from this project are available online on the VMI Archives website.   All interview transcripts are presented in full-text format and many include audio excerpts.

If you have questions about the Military Oral History Project database or about this website, contact the VMI Archives. If you would like additional information about the Adams Center, please contact Bradley L. Coleman, Director of the Adams Center, VMI Department of History.
