McCollum Statement in Honor of Veterans Day
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) issued the following statement today ahead of Wednesday’s commemoration of Veterans Day:
“On Veterans Day, we take time to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, and to recognize their bravery, commitment, and sacrifices to protect the values and freedoms we hold dear as Americans. Whether they served in the Air Force, Army, Navy, Coast Guard, or Merchant Marines, our veterans deserve the support of a grateful nation.
“In Congress, I’ll continue to work for our veterans to make sure they have access to all the benefits they’re entitled to, and I’ll do so by working with community partners to ensure opportunities for good jobs, education, and housing for veterans and their families. During this COVID-19 pandemic and the added stress we face as a nation, it is even more important that our veterans are able to take advantage of the health care benefits they’re entitled to, including our Blue Water Navy veterans.
“Please join me today in honoring and remembering our veterans and their service to our nation.”
