The partners with the Library of Congress, Never Alone Initiative, participates in the Louisiana Veterans History Project by focusing on the oral histories of Louisiana's residents. Never Alone Initiative is a non-profit organization of compassionate individuals, they are dedicated to providing emotional and moral support, advice, and referral services to help the surviving spouses of military personnel and their families better manage their depression and start to begin returning to living a normal life.

They provide a welcoming and supportive community of survivors so that no one needs to feel alone. The veterans history project is open to anyone that has been in the military. They do not have to be active still in the military to participate. They are also taking stories from Gold Star Families. So if you are a surviving spouse, adult child, or parent of a veteran that was in the military you will be able to take part in this as well.

All interviews will be sent off to the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. where they will be uploaded into the database and they will also be housed in the Digital Library at Never Alone Initiative.
