The Wisconsin Veterans Museum (WVM) collects and publishes a substantial number of veteran interviews from the Fox Valley and the surrounding area. Additionally, we act as the dark archives for several interviews from that region of Wisconsin.

These Fox Valley oral history interviews range from the current day back to World War I. The museum features them in galleries, traveling exhibits, and online presentations. Currently, we are collecting oral histories from the Fox Valley.

Today we will provide a sample of Fox Valley veterans and online access to their complete interviews. We will start with a recent interview.
