Congressman Jeff Denham represents Modesto, Turlock and the surrounding area. Thursday he released a new Thank-a-Vet Thursday (#TVT) video featuring World War II Navy veteran James Adams of Oakdale.
This #TVT video is an excerpt from a longer interview for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project and features Adams sharing a story of his ship dodging a Japanese submarine by finding shallow water in a river where the Army had set up camp.
Adams’ story is shared as part of Rep. Denham’s #TVT social media initiative to thank veterans for their service. Rep. Denham invites and encourages social media users to post photos and videos using #TVT to recognize America’s military veterans. All #TVT videos can be found on Rep. Denham’s YouTube channel and official Facebook page.
