Veterans' Life Stories is a student run club at the University of Pennsylvania created to honor and capture the voice of our country’s Veterans through interviewing them and writing their stories. We aim to foster a sense of connection between Veterans and the public in order to offer a glimpse of who these Veterans are as well as the events and circumstances that have shaped them into the people they are today. If you would like to be interviewed and to share your story, please reach out to veteranslifestories@gmail.com
