The VOCES project was started in 1999 by University of Texas professor Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez. Her goal was to document the stories of the Latino experience in World War II, a subject that had previously been mostly ignored by the majority of historians. Now having interviewed over 500 men and women (and recently expanded to include stories of the Korean and Vietnam wars), this project is one of the premier sources for primary accounts of American Latino history. While the actual tapes and archives are located in Texas, there is an excellent website (click here!) that provides many different first-hand accounts of these experiences. Definitely worth the browsing time and more, so why not click over and read about a unique bit of American History today?
