Rep. John Barrow introduces bill to permanently fund VCP

Rep. John Barrow, GA-12, recently introduced a bill to permanently fund the Veterans Curation Program. The congressman represents the Augusta area, home to one of three VCP labs around the country. The others are located in St. Louis, Mo. and Washington, D.C.

“This program is an absolute win-win and needs to be supported,” Barrow stated in a news release.  “The Corps needs to catalogue these artifacts, and who better to hire than our men and women returning home from war?”

Barrow’s bill would expand funding for the VCP, currently supported by $3.5 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, to allow the program to double in size from 50 veterans to 100.
