Spearheaded by the Office of Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, the Missouri Veteran Stories program honors Missouri’s military veterans by capturing their stories on DVD, to be preserved for future generations.

As a testimony to the state's rich contribution to America's freedom, Missouri has over 500,000 military veterans living in the state today. Each has an experience and a story to tell that can benefit us all. However, each day more of our military veterans pass away; and their stories go with them. Missouri Veterans Stories collects these stories from our veterans and displays them for the benefit of our veterans, our state and our country. The program is open to all men and women currently residing in Missouri who have served in any branch of the United States military.

Five- to seven-minute fully edited digital stories are produced from interviews and conversations with each veteran. These stories are then stored in the permanent Missouri Veteran Stories archive. The entire archive is available through this website, and through touch-screen consoles in the State Capitol and elsewhere.

The Missouri Veteran Stories program captures the stories of Missouri veterans and makes these stories accessible, meaningful, and educational to people in Missouri and throughout the world.
