In another article called “An App for Them,” two sisters have created a user-friendly tool that allows veterans to record their stories of their service using just their smartphones. It was developed for the Veterans History Project, which the U.S. Congress created in October 2000. The app was started by two sisters in Massachusetts Jean Rhodes and Nancy McNamara. It started when Rhodes first encountered the Veterans History Project. She was conducting interviews with veterans alongside her son and found the process cumbersome. She called her sister who owns her own web design company for advice. They built a pilot app and tested it out and hired a firm to develop the app. Their product which they are donating to the Library has been tested by folklorists, oral historians from universities, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (D-Mass.) and Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.), who have both used the app to interview veterans in their home states.
