Back in the spring, the National Court Reporters Foundation set a goal — yes, an ambitious goal — to have 3,500 veterans’ history transcripts submitted to the Library of Congress by Veterans Day 2014, and you are making it happen.
Thanks to court reporters around the country, NCRF has submitted almost 3,400 to the Library of Congress as of the end of August 2014. We’re so close! Furthermore, transcribing a 60-90 minute veteran’s history from a streaming audio or video file earns 0.25 Professional Development Credits per interview (a maximum of four interviews for 1.0 PDC in your three-year CEU cycle).
Help us meet our goal:
- Volunteer to transcribe recorded interviews.
- Interview a veteran in your community and transcribe the history.
- Host a VHP day in your school, firm, or courthouse.
- Earn free PDCs, if you’re a certified court reporter.
- Get a free NCRA student membership, if you’re a student and transcribe two histories.
- Experience a veteran’s story firsthand.
- Feel humbled and gratified.
- Help preserve America’s history.
It’s more rewarding than you can imagine!

Remember: 3,500 by Veterans Day! We can do it together.
