Interviews are audio-recorded and normally last between an hour to 90 minutes. Two or three students lead the interview process, allowing them to become the historians for that day.
Having concluded a month-long study of Vietnam, students work with professional historians to build their interview skills before leading the oral history session.
Questions are carefully crafted to allow veterans to respond with the memories they wish to share.
Veterans receive a copy of their interview, and a copy will be archived with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project.
Auburn High is an official partner of the Department of Defense Vietnam War Commemoration program, and participating veterans who have not already been so recognized will be presented with the 50th anniversary commemoration lapel pin.
The interviews also are officially endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission.
