WASHINGTON D.C.- Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.), the Ranking Member of the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, released the following statement after speaking on the House floor last night to encourage all veterans to participate in the Library of Congress‘ Veterans History Project: 

"I am proud to co-lead an initiative this fall with Chairman Takano to get more veterans to participate in the Veterans History Project. The spirit of America is rooted in the men and women who have selflessly served in the United States Armed Forces and it is essential that we recognize and preserve their stories for our children and grandchildren. I recently submitted the story of my service to the Project and wholeheartedly encourage all of my fellow veterans to do the same by contacting their Member of Congress or the Library of Congress."
