The Saints at War Project was begun in the year 2000 by BYU professors Robert Freeman and Dennis Wright. The Project is dedicated to acquiring and preserving the accounts of LDS Veterans who have served in any of the militarily significant wars and conflicts since the organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In addition to general servicemen and women, we are interested in others who have experienced wars in various ways including at the homefront.

A partnership was begun in the year 2001 with the national Veteran’s History Project through the Library of Congress. In addition, We have worked closely with the L. Tom Perry Special Collections in the Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University to preserve these accounts. To date, over 3,000 accounts have been received and most have been conveyed to the Library. We are grateful to the curators and others for their assistance in this process

We invite anyone who has experiences to share to email the Project leadership at robertfreeman@byu.edu or call 801-422-2484.
