Rep. Jackson Launches Veterans History Project in TX-13
Washington, September 27, 2021
WASHINGTON — Today, Congressman Ronny Jackson (TX-13) announced his office’s participation in the Veterans History Project (VHP), an archive of oral interviews and documents from American war veterans that is housed at the Library of Congress. All U.S. military veterans from World War I through the most recent military conflicts who live in Texas’ 13th Congressional District are invited to share their stories.
Additional guidance can be found at Jackson.House.Gov/VHP and questions should be directed to Jackson’s Amarillo office at (806) 641-5600.
Jackson said: “The Texas Panhandle is home to many brave heroes who have served our country in the U.S. military, and I want to make sure your remarkable stories are documented at the Library of Congress for generations to come. I know it can sometimes be hard to dig up those memories, but I really believe it’s important to make sure future generations can learn from firsthand accounts of our experiences as servicemembers and now veterans. I’ve already done my interview for the Veterans History Project, and I hope you’ll participate with me.”
