My Position on Veterans

America stands as the greatest country in the world, thanks to the dedicated men and women in uniform who serve in Utah, across the nation, and abroad. These heroes demonstrate bravery beyond the call of duty, and their service is a source of eternal gratitude. In addition to the constituent services efforts of my district office, Congressman Burgess Owens has tirelessly championed policies in Congress to ensure that America’s veterans receive the best care and support they rightfully deserve.

The Library of Congress Veterans History Project:

As a son of a WWII veteran, Congressman Burgess Owens has a deep respect and honor for those who have served, and teamed up with the Library of Congress to take part in the Veterans History Project, a non-campaign related project established by the Library of Congress which seeks to collect, preserve and make accessible the firsthand recollections of U.S. military veterans who served from World War I through more recent conflicts and peacekeeping missions, so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand what they saw, did and felt during their service.

Congressman Burgess Owens is looking for stories within the 4th Congressional District in Utah to gather in partnership with the Library of Congress. If you have an interest, or know of a veteran who would be interested to share their story, please fill out the form here.
