Davidson Applauds National Designation of Veterans Memorial and Museum on House Floor
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Warren Davidson (OH-08) recently spoke on the house floor in support of H.R. 1900 which would designate the new Veterans Memorial and Museum, currently under construction in downtown Columbus, as the “National Veterans Memorial and Museum." H.R. 1900 recently passed the house and a companion bill has been introduced in the Senate by Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (R-OH).
“As an Army veteran and former Army Ranger, I’m proud to join Reps. Stivers, Beatty, Tiberi and the entire Ohio delegation in today's designation of the Veteran’s Memorial Museum in Columbus Ohio, as the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.
“I thank my colleagues who do this not just for Ohio, but as something for our nation and our nation's veterans.
“This museum is squarely focused on telling the personal stories of those who have served, including those who have sacrificed their lives serving our country. The National Veteran’s Memorial and Museum will be the only one of its kind that uses personal belongings, letters and memories to bring the stories of our service members and their families to life.
“In addition to world-class interactive exhibits that will serve to educate the next generation about the value of military service, this will be connected to an online database featuring the collection.
“The National Veteran’s Memorial and Museum will also serve to honor our men and women by providing space for celebrations and reunions.
“Ohio has a proud history of honoring our veterans and our current men and women in uniform. We are home to the United States Air Force Museum and United States Veteran Affairs National Archives. It is fitting that Ohio should be the place for telling these stories.
“I appreciate the bipartisan support on this bill and urge my colleagues to support it.”
