In 2003, there were between 13,000 and 15,000 World War II veterans residing in the state of Delaware.

Recognizing that these veterans represented a valuable historical resource, Lt. Governor John Carney, in coordination with Secretary of State Harriet Smith Windsor and the Delaware Commission on Veterans Affairs announced “Project Delaware – World War II”, an oral history project intended to memorialize the accounts and experiences of the World War II veterans and those serving on the home front of Delaware. By the end of 2003, the Commission on Veterans Affairs had received over 400 completed questionnaires from veterans interested in participating in this project.
