Sharing our Veterans Stories
The men and women who have served in our armed forces have faced evil every day so that we don’t have to. Their sacrifices deserve recognition, and they deserve to have their stories told. In that vein, our office is working to ensure veterans in the First District get the recognition they deserve. We want to help make sure that their stories can be past on for years to come as part of the Library Of Congress' Veterans History Project. 

The Veterans History Project was created in 2000 as a part of the American Folk Life Center at the Library of Congress to preserve the personal accounts of veterans. Here is how it works: Once a veteran applies to be a part of the project, selected veterans will be contacted by our staff to arrange an interview at a mutually convenient time. The recorded interview is then sent to the Library of Congress to be part of the collection of veterans’ stories, so future generations can go back to see and hear the stories of those who served our nation.

If you or someone you love is a veteran, we would love to hear their story. Click here to fill out a form and provide a little more information.
