Jack Kingston helps preserve war memories

May 29, 2003

Valdosta - Congressman Jack Kingston is helping preserve veterans' memories.

Thursday, Kingston kicked off the Veteran's History Project in Valdosta. He encouraged veterans to record their accounts in the service and send them to the Library of Congress. The video and audio collections will be archived as part of Congress's Veteran's Library.

"We need to do this so our children will know about the sacrifices all veterans made," said Kingston. "Its a crucial part of American history."

Kingston also kicked off Veteran's History Projects in Warner Robins and Brunswick Thursday. If you're interested in submitting a video or audio memory, contact your local veterans' affairs office or Congressman Kingston's Brunswick office.
