Veterans History Project

In 2000, Congress created the Veterans History Project with unanimous support from both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

My office can help you submit your firsthand account of your military service, told through audio recorded interviews, letters, postcards, personal diaries or photographs.
