House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today in recognition of Veterans Day:
“Today, I join in marking Veterans Day, a time to pay tribute to the men and women who have served our nation in uniform and honor the many sacrifices they have made. We come together today to assert what always unites us: a faith in America’s promise and a deep gratitude for those who have served our country in defense of that promise.
“On Veterans Day, we recommit ourselves to providing the best support and care to those who have served us in wartime and in peacetime. Ensuring that our nation’s veterans have access to skills training, quality health care, affordable education, and civilian job placement when they return home must be a top priority. May God bless our troops, our veterans, and all who serve our nation.”
