The LoC is one of the best on-lines sources for special collections in digital format for many topics.
While reading a blog about a 105-year-old US Army veteran (a Black woman in Washington DC named Alyce Dixon) I came across this large collection of oral histories and personal collections of letters and pictures.  Fascinating and well-organized digital collection of US military veterans' history.

The Library of Congress is really focusing on women in the US military recently!  Today's blog post concerns this site, the Pritzker Military Library, which documents, collects and celebrates US women in the military serving during WWII.
