On December 10th, 2010, the Voices of Freedom conducted their first interview at an office in Woodridge, VA. Over the last ten years, the VOF have conducted 490 interviews with veterans of wars and conflicts from World War II to the current War on Terror. From the beaches of Normandy, to the jungles of Vietnam, to the deserts of the Middle East, they have captured and preserved unique stories of Americans in wartime. Combat veterans, first responders on 9/11, and civilians who played a critical part in the war effort, such as “Rosie the Riveters”, and USO dancers have all sat down to tell their stories.

Statement from Allan D. Cors, Founding Chairman 

John D. Jenkins personified the best in American citizenry and patriotism.

He proudly served his country as an Army Lieutenant Colonel during two tours of duty in Vietnam. He then dedicated his life to public service and was a role model for all.

The Americans in Wartime Experience is a planned 63-acre educational and historical complex like no other. Designed to tell the stories and honor the sacrifices of all who sacrificially gave during times of conflict — whether on the homefront or abroad — this project will help you walk back into history in an new way.
