November 11 marks Veterans Day, and one of the best ways to honor our country's heroes is to make sure their memories live on. Cameron Miller, the director of new operations for the CW39 Houston, sets from behind the camera to talk about a trip he recently took to New Orleans to learn more about his family's military history at the city's World War II museum.

A short time later, Cameron Miller received a formal letter from the offices of U.S. Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, notifying him word of his experience at the World War II Museum in New Orleans had been added to the official congressional record. Olson emphasized the importance of preserving pictures and other insightful memorabilia for the sake of younger generations.

"I thank Cameron for honoring our veterans' service in the best way possible— by preserving their memories and sharing their stories [...] he makes Texas and our veteran community proud," the letter read.

Olson also added a handwritten note:

"Cameron: Those who forget the lessons of history will repeat the same mistakes. Thank you for ensure all Americans Never Forget Our WW2 Heroes.

Very respectfully, Pete Olson."
