The Library of Congress preserves our nation’s memories: Experiencing War (Military Intel: The Inside Story): Stories from the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress.

Here are stories of Military Intelligence (or “Intel,” as insiders call it), the secret weapon of any country’s war effort. Every veteran has his or her own war, and each is custodian of a unique story and memories. At the Veterans History Project, we treasure the personal narratives sent to us by veterans from all wars. Vivid as if they happened yesterday, these heartfelt accounts make us laugh, cry and remember.The stories are not a formal history of war, but a treasure trove of individual feelings and personal recollections.
