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.

The Veterans History Project will preserve their stories for future generations to ensure that their service and sacrifices are never forgotten.
