Rep. Maloney Statement on Veterans Day 2016
In honor of Veterans Day 2016, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) issued the following statement:
“Today we honor our men and women in uniform and the sacrifices they have made in defense of our freedom and American values. As the daughter, widow, and sister of veterans, I am reminded every day of our sacred responsibility to care for and serve those who have served us. Our nation will forever be in the debt of the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces and defend our freedom and we have an obligation to repay that debt every single day.
“Our veterans deserve world-class health care and the necessary resources to ensure a successful transition to civilian life. They also deserve our country’s undying gratitude. This Veteran’s Day Congress must commit itself to achieving these goals and I will be doing everything possible to ensure that we do. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all who have served and their families!”
