As a veteran himself, he has the perfect background to work on this important project. It is vital that our service members can share their stories for generations to come. I am very proud that our country is working to document our veterans’ experiences, and I especially look forward to hearing the stories of our nation’s heroes in our own backyard. Terry has already hit the ground running, and in the weeks and months ahead he will continue reaching out to veterans’ advocates and veterans service organizations in our region to identify veterans who would like to share their stories.”
