Congress convenes Tuesday, without a WWII veteran

The end of the World War II era is slowly slipping away. When the 114th Congress convenes Tuesday, for the first time since 1944, there will be no World War II veterans serving in either the House of Representatives or the Senate. The first to serve was Lt. JG George Andrews, who was stationed at Pearl Harbor in the U.S. Naval Reserve when he was elected to Congress in 1943. Andrews, who took office on March 14, 1944, represented Alabama’s 3rd District during his long tenure in the House of Representatives.
