Updates from the Veterans History Project (VHP): Next Tuesday: VHP Discusses WWI Immigrant Veterans Online

The Library of Congress is highlighting its remarkable World War I resources with series of five free webinars in summer and fall 2017. The sessions will run for 40 minutes each and are open to the public, although registration is required for each event.
More than 120,000 veterans received citizenship as a direct consequence of military service and began a tradition of service-based naturalization. Liaison Specialist, Owen Rogers, explores the intersection of immigration and World War I military service through materials collected by the Library of Congress Veterans History Project (VHP).
