Celebrating Veterans Day

Share this post:

Veterans Day is November 11, 2011. As Andrew wrote last year, the Library is home to the Veterans History Project. The Veterans History Project was created by Congress in 2000 (P.L. 106-380) as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. The Project’s mission is to collect, preserve, and make accessible personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the reality of war. More information on Veterans Day is also available from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We want to thank all veterans for their service, including those who work in the Law Library and are pictured below.

  1. Just wondering who these staff members are, and perhaps their branch of service and when/where they served.

    • On the left is Mary Rich. She served in the U.S. Navy. Charles Dove is on the right and served in the U.S. Army.
