Today, U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler announced that she is adding a second event for Southwest Washington veterans to share their stories to be preserved in the Library of Congress. The additional event will be in Lewis County. She will also host the originally announced Vancouver-area event.

“There has been a lot of interest from Southwest Washington veterans to share their military stories – it’s a reminder of all of the brave men and women willing to sacrifice for our country who live right here. It’s my privilege to add a second event in the northern portion of this district where we’ll record and preserve as many Lewis County-area veterans’ wartime experiences as possible for future generations,” said Jaime.

All Southwest Washington veterans are invited to participate and share their stories. Those who wish to participate, should RSVP by contacting Louise Fendrich in Jaime’s Vancouver office at 360-695-6292 or louise.fendrich@mail.house.gov.

Additional details on the time and location of the Clark and Lewis County events will be forthcoming. 

About the Veterans History Project:

Jaime is partnering with the Veterans History Project to honor the men and women from Southwest Washington who have served our nation in the military.

At the events, Jaime, her staff, and members of the military community will be conducting one-on-one, 30-minute interviews with Southwest Washington veterans about their wartime experiences. The interviews will then be submitted for preservation as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Its collection can be viewed and more information is available about the Veterans History Project at www.loc.gov/vets.
