McCaul Announces Veterans History Project
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Michael McCaul (TX-10), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced the start of this year’s Veterans History Project, a nation-wide preservation effort with the Library of Congress.
McCaul invites all veterans residing in the 10th Congressional District of Texas who have served in any capacity from World War II to recent conflicts to share their stories so their legacy can be preserved in the Library of Congress.
Congressman McCaul: “As the proud son of a WWII B-17 bombardier, I am inspired and awestruck by the service of our men and women in uniform. I want to make sure their stories, these important historical accounts, will be preserved for generations to come.”
The interviews will be recorded by a member of McCaul’s staff in the veterans’ choice of video or audio-only format. In addition to the oral history, the Library of Congress also accepts photographs, letters, diaries, journals, and other military documents for preservation. Each veterans’ story will then be available for historians, researchers, and future generations to access.
Our staff members are available to meet and conduct the interviews in any location most comfortable for the veterans. Our office is planning on conducting interviews starting in late-September. If you are a veteran who is interested in sharing your story or know someone who would be, please contact Robert Dyke in McCaul’s Austin office at (512) 473-2357 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
