Congressman André Carson Statement in recognition of Veterans Day
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman André Carson (IN-07) released the following statement today in recognition of Veterans Day:
“On this Veterans Day, I am grateful for the men and women who have served, and who continue to serve, our great nation.
“In times of war and peace, our service members are on the front line, risking everything to protect our nation. They are patriots from all walks of life—our parents, our grandparents, our brothers and sisters, our neighbors, our children, and our friends. They represent the best of what America has to offer, in uniform and when they return to civilian life.
“While our nation’s debt to our veterans can never fully be repaid, today is a solemn moment to recognize our continued gratitude to those who served in defense of liberty, justice, and freedom.
“As President John F. Kennedy once said:
‘As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.’
“His words are a constant reminder to me as I work in Congress to ensure our veterans get the respect and care they have earned and deserve.
“Today, I hope all Hoosiers will join me to pause for a moment and pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of our veterans for defending our freedoms at home and abroad.”
**Congressman Carson wants to remind Hoosiers that if they have any questions or issues with the VA, they should contact his office at (317) 283-6516. He employs a full-time veterans’ caseworker who can help veterans who have questions about their rights or benefits.**
