Veterans History Project
Congressman Stewart is an Air Force veteran and values the stories and sacrifices of fellow veterans. The Veterans History Project through the Library of Congress American Folklife Center is an excellent way to preserve the legacy of those who have faithfully served our country. The Project collects first-hand accounts of U.S. Veterans from the following wars:
- World War I (1914-1920)
- World War II (1939-1946)
- Korean War (1950-1955)
- Vietnam War (1961-1975)
- Persian Gulf War (1990-1995)
- Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts (2001-present)
