May 27, 2013
Press Release

"This Memorial Day, we remember the brave members of our Armed Forces and their families who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the rights and freedoms all Americans hold dear. We owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude to the fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, sisters and brothers who put themselves in harms’ way to ensure we could continue to enjoy our freedoms here at home. We must continue to honor their memory and do everything we can to take care of those who do return home from war by providing our veterans with the health care they need, eliminating the backlog of VA claims, and creating good jobs for them to support themselves and their families. To all of our service members and families, I cannot thank you enough for your unending dedication and sacrifice."
