Capitol Commentary with U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack

Congressman Dave Loebsack -- CROPPEDU.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack
Iowa’s Second Congressional District


Today we reflect on the sacrifices of America’s men and women in uniform and keep alive the memory of those who fell during their service to our nation.  As a military parent, I am inspired every day to fight for those who have fought for us – their lives are a testament to the best our country has to offer.

For this reason, I encourage you to consider participate in the Library of Congress’s Veterans History Project.  This great initiative collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American veterans and the civilians who supported them from World War I to the present day to ensure that their stories live on.  If you or someone you know has a story, photographs, papers, or other materials that you think should be preserved as a part of veterans history, I recommend visiting the Veterans History Project’s website for more information.

Please be assured that as a member of the Military Veterans and Military Families Caucuses, I will continue to work to ensure that we as a grateful nation serve our veterans and their families with the same dignity and honor with which they have served America.
