Nov 9, 2017

(Washington, D.C.) –  House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement on Veterans Day:

“This Veterans Day, we honor the men and women who dedicated themselves to defending their fellow Americans and upholding the unique values that make our country great.

“To honor their patriotism, I will fight for the services and care they need and deserve. From affordable health care to housing, our veterans have earned the support of their countrymen. It is one of the great responsibilities of the federal government to ensure our veterans have a simple transition back to civilian life by providing skills training, access to education opportunities, and proper mental health services.

“On this day, and on all days, I thank our country’s veterans and their families in Queens, the Bronx, and across the nation who continue to be models for bravery, patriotism, and loyalty.”
