The “Voices of Veterans” program records the stories of Texas Veterans through their time in service and after returning home. The Oral History program seeks to record the stories of Texas Veterans and archive their stories in the Texas General Land Office while the Next Gen Warrior program provides inspiration and guidance for Iraq and Afghanistan era Veterans as they transition to civilian life.

Oral History

The Oral History program seeks to record the stories of Texas veterans. A rare glimpse into the storied past of our men and women in uniform, the Voices of Veterans program is proud to capture the histories of Texas’ Veterans. Hear their stories.

Next Gen Warrior

Many Veterans struggle to find meaning in their work after service. In 2019, Next Gen Warrior was formed, with the intent to capture the stories of Iraq and Afghanistan era Veterans and provide inspiration to others as they step off the battlefield and into civilian life. Next Gen Warrior reminds Veterans that their service continues to make an impact on the people of Texas, even though it might not make headlines or save lives.

Never Forgotten

Veteran interviews are permanently archived at the Texas General Land Office, where they join the historic documents of other Texas heroes such as Sam Houston, David Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Barret Travis. The archives are made available to researchers, historians, genealogists and the public to inspire future generations and remind us of our Veterans' sacrifices.
