McCollum Statement on Veterans Day

November 11, 2018
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement in observance of Veterans Day:

On Veterans Day, we take time to honor the brave and selfless service of the women and men of the United States Armed Forces. We dedicate this day to the sacrifices made at home by their families and loved ones who do so much to support our heroes. This Veterans Day also marks a major milestone – the one hundredth anniversary of the Armistice on November 11, 1911.

Beyond our gratitude and remembrance, our veterans and their families deserve the unyielding support of our government. From employment opportunities, to access to high-quality health care, to educational assistance, our nation stands ready to meet our obligations to our veterans.

Yet there is still much to be done, and I look forward to working in the 116th Congress to serve our veterans and their families with the utmost respect and care.
