The motto at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center is to "Tell the Army's Story, One Soldier at a Time." In order to accomplish our mission, they need YOUR stories. They run a veterans survey program to collect recollections and stories from United States Army veterans. These surveys allow researchers, historians and general visitors to their facility to better understand the experiences of the Soldier, and are critical to helping the next generation learn from our history. Everyone, from privates to generals, has a unique and important story, and they are interested in recording, preserving, and making all of them available. Please take the time to participate in this program so that others may understand all that you have experienced and sacrificed for this country. Instructions and access to the survey links. external link (opens in new browser window)

The USAHEC surveys are based on demographic and organizational information about your service time. Please feel free to write as much as you’d like in additional pages and submit directly to the office of AMEDD History and Heritage through our website. Thank you for taking the time to grant us the privilege of obtaining your honored story.
