    Recognizing our Nation's Veterans: Share Your Story

    Rep. Stivers tours the future site of the "National Veterans Memorial and Museum" in Columbus.

    Our freedom comes at a price, a price that our veterans and their families selflessly pay for us. That makes it even more important to take time to honor our veterans not only on Veterans Day, but throughout the year.

    One way this can be done is through places like the “National Veterans Memorial and Museum” being constructed in downtown Columbus, which I have been working to support in Congress. This project, projected to open in the summer of 2018, will be the only public museum in the country that exists for the exclusive role of sharing the experiences and voices of veterans across all eras, conflicts and branches of the military.

    Representatives Joyce Beatty (D-OH), Pat Tiberi (R-OH), and I have introduced legislation along with the entire Ohio delegation to create a federal designation for this memorial and museum. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum will be just one more way we can honor our nation’s veterans and educate Americans about their service and sacrifice.

    Now, I want to have the opportunity to honor and recognize some of the incredible veterans in Ohio's 15th District. If you, or someone you know, are a veteran, please consider emailing a military-related photo of the person to my office at [email protected] Included with the photo should be an explanation of what their service (or your service) meant to you, along with the following information:

    Brief Bio (less than 250 words)
    Military Branch
    Years of Service
    War or Conflict (if applicable)
    Address in Ohio's 15th District
    Phone Number

    The deadline to submit information is October 31, 2017. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my Hilliard office at 614-771-4968.
