Dear Friend

          As your representative in the U.S. Congress, I introduced H.R. 1512, a bill that will designate at least one city in the United States each year as an “American World War II City.”  This legislation names Wilmington, North Carolina as the first recognized city.  Cities seeking this recognition must be ones that have preserved the history of the city’s contributions to the war effort and recognizes our World War II veterans.

          The City of Wilmington played a significant role in the war effort and is very deserving of the designation as “American World War II City.”  The city has done a fantastic job of preserving important pieces of war history including the USS North Carolina.  It’s time we recognize Wilmington and cities all over the country for their contributions to the war effort.  

          Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns on any matter.  In the meantime, I hope you will take a moment to visit my website: rouzer.house.gov and our official government Facebook page: facebook.com/RepRouzer.  You will find information on a number of issues as well as have the opportunity to sign up for my weekly newsletter.
