About the Maverick Veterans’ Voices Project


A joint project of the UT Arlington’s College of Liberal Arts and the University Libraries, the mission of the project is to honor and preserve the experiences of the men and women of the UT Arlington community who have served in any branch of the United States Military.

This project’s goals are to record the oral histories of veterans (alumni, current and former students, faculty, staff, friends) belonging to the UT Arlington community, and of those who have supported them as spouses, children and family members.


Veterans and their families are invited to record segments in which they recount their experiences as a veteran or family member, lessons learned, memories of their time at UT Arlington, and other thoughts. The project is open to all members of the greater UT Arlington community, including friends and supporters. Soon-to-be commissioned cadets from the Cadet Corps will also be invited to participate.  While most interviews are conducted on the UTA campus, participants unable to visit UTA may request a home/hospital recording session.

To express an interest in being interviewed, please visit our Participate Page.


The Mav Vets site includes biographical information about each interviewee along with video clips from the interviews. Links to the full interviews and transcripts are also provided. Additionally, the site includes an In Memoriam page listing the many Mavericks who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending their country, and our liberties.


The Project is funded through grants and donations. To inquire about making a donation, please contact:
