Carson Statement on Veterans Day
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Andre Carson released the following statement in recognition of Veterans Day, which is observed each year on November 11th:
“On Veterans Day, we honor veterans of all eras, our service members, and our military families for their service and sacrifices defending our great nation.
“Our country is home to over 20 million veterans, including over 400,000 living in Indiana. These men and women have courageously served and protected our freedom at home and abroad.
“That is why today – and every day – we must recommit ourselves to ensuring that we demonstrate the same commitment to our nation’s veterans that they have shown us by ensuring they have the support and resources they need when they come home. Our veterans deserve better than to face a backlog in benefits or health care or to face difficulty finding employment. We must never forget our obligations to those who served honorably, as well as those who continue to serve selflessly in defense of our liberty today.”
