Honors Iowans Military Service for Iowa History Month
Wednesday, March 4, 2020
For Iowa History Month, I want to recognize the role Iowa’s veterans have played in our history.
For instance, in the Civil War, Iowa sent over 75,000 soldiers to fight for the Union, the most per capita of any state.
Iowa has kept that tradition of service, and I often have the pleasure of meeting our veterans.
I have also had the honor of helping preserve 31 interviews with Iowa veterans as part of the Veterans History Project.
The Veterans History Project will preserve their stories for future generations to ensure that their service and sacrifices are never forgotten.
