Hoosiers have a long and proud history of serving our nation in times of war, and it is vitally important that we learn from the experiences of veterans. That is why I am proud to support the Veterans History Project through the Library of Congress.
This is a wonderful opportunity for family members of veterans, fellow veterans, or young people to interview a veteran.
These histories are compiled through audio or video-recorded interviews, in addition to gathering original correspondence, photographs, and diaries. I have interviewed several Indiana veterans for this project. It is a very rewarding experience to hear firsthand the tales of bravery and challenges faced while serving our country.
I encourage all Hoosier veterans to share their stories for this important archive. Visit www.loc.gov/vets or call my office at (317) 226-5555.
It is an honor to serve the thousands of veterans and all Hoosiers in the U.S. Senate.
