If you would like to contact the Legacy Project, please write to us at:

PO Box 53250
Washington, D.C. 20009
or e-mail: WarLetters2004@yahoo.com

If you are sending letters, please send a legible photocopy or typed transcript of the material. Make sure to include information on the serviceman or woman who wrote the letter (e.g., where he or she served, his or her rank, and any other important personal and/or background information), as well as your phone number and an address where we can contact you.

Please do not send original letters unless you are planning to dispose of the material otherwise. We cannot return anything sent to us, unless we specifically ask to borrow it for a special project or museum display. Also, it is not necessary to send us a query asking if we are interested in your correspondence. Due to staff and time constraints, it is very difficult for us to respond to these queries. If the letters (or e-mails) are war-related, please assume that we will be interested in them.

Although we appreciate the generosity of those who have offered, the Legacy Project does not accept monetary donations. Nor do we solicit grants, government funding, or any other form of financial assistance. The Legacy Project is able to support itself thanks to the assistance of volunteers, who donate both their time and the necessary financial resources to cover all administrative costs.

Please note: Due to the enormous volume of mail we receive it can take us several months or longer to respond. If you have sent material to the Legacy Project and not received a reply, it is most likely because we have been overwhelmed with mail. (In some cases we have had trouble reading a contributor?s handwriting and have been unable to respond.) We appreciate every letter sent to us, and we will continue to try and reply to every submission as quickly as possible.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
