Edwards to Host Reception for Participants of Veterans History Project at Joint Base Andrews
Washington, DC – On Friday, November 6, 2015, Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (MD-4) will host a reception for participants of the Veterans History Project from Maryland’s 4th Congressional District.  Rep. Edwards will be joined by Colonel Julie A. Grundahl, Vice Commander of the 11th Wing and Joint Base Andrews, who will offer remarks.  With Veterans Day around the corner, this will be a great opportunity to hear veterans’ experiences firsthand, and celebrate their service. 
The Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the first-hand accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
