November 8, 2019 Press Release

As the nation observes Veterans Day on November 11th, I want to add my voice to those offering their thanks to the brave men and women who have worn or continue to wear the uniform of our great country.  

Too often, Veterans Day is seen only as a day of remembrance. And as important as that is, as a member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, I think it is also a call to action to keep our commitments to those who have served.
