Documenting Military Spouse Stories
Generations of military spouses have been irrevocably changed when their service member raised their right hand and pledged service to the United States of America. Veteran’s Spouse Project is dedicated to preserving the narratives, stories, and moments of military spouses that have helped shape our nation.
From World War II to Present Day
Through short documentary-style videos, Veteran’s Spouse Project shares experiences from World War II to Vietnam to current-day conflicts.
The videos are a visual and auditory representation of the emotional heartache, anxieties, and happy moments that have shaped military spouses into the strong, resilient women and men that support the military family and manage the behind-the-scenes for every service member.
Your Story is Worth Hearing
When playwright, Amy Uptgraft, was researching for the play, I Will Wait, she realized how important it was to document these moments and how much each story could make a difference.
As Veteran’s Spouse Project grew, so did the number of military spouses who wanted to document their own experiences for other military spouses around the world.
