Enzi encourages Wyomingites to preserve the stories of veterans


Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is inviting people to collect the experiences and stories of Wyoming veterans as part of the Veterans History Project, an initiative that aims to preserve the recollections of American veterans.


"Our debt to our country’s veterans is never more clear to me than when I listen to firsthand accounts of their service,” Enzi said. "It’s important that we not only listen to our veterans’ stories, but preserve these memories to educate future generations and honor each veteran’s commitment to our nation. If you are a veteran or are interested in interviewing a veteran, my wife Diana and I encourage you to take part in the Veterans History Project.”


The Veterans History Project is an effort led by the Library of Congress to collect and preserve the firsthand accounts and memories of America’s veterans from World War I to present. Interviews and historical documents become part of the permanent collections of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.


Enzi’s office is joining the Library of Congress to host a Veterans History Project virtual training workshop on May 7 at 4:00 p.m. MST. Participants will learn more about the program and receive training on how to conduct interviews with our veterans and submit those interviews to the Library of Congress. If you are interested in attending this free online training workshop, check out my website or email Rachel Vliem in my DC office at
