Commitment to American Veterans
The NSCDA made a nationwide commitment to become involved with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. The Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. Offer your time and energy, and they’ll put you to work.
America’s VetDogs is a service dog program that provides service dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf, facility dogs for Military Hospitals and VA Medical Centers, assistance dogs for those suffering from PTSD, and service dogs for those with physical impairments.
America’s VetDogs has achieved a GuideStar Platinum Ranking and provides its services free of charge to veterans. The NSCDA partnered with America’s VetDogs in 2021. Our Corporate Societies, Town Committees, and individual Dames have joined together in support of our military through “Name A Puppy” sponsorships
Library of Congress Veteran’s History Project
The Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress collects, preserves and makes accessible the firsthand recollections of U.S. military veterans who served from World War I through more recent conflicts and peacekeeping missions, so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand what they saw, did and felt during their service.
The NSCDA has partnered with the Veterans History Project, and to date, Dames have conducted, documented, and catalogued over 250 veteran’s interviews.
