Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies and Co-chair of the Congressional Military Family Caucus (CMFC), released a statement honoring our nation's veterans in advance of the upcoming Veterans Day:

“Our veterans are not just former soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen. They are community members who are working as teachers, postmen, doctors, and truck drivers. They are also fathers and mothers and neighbors to us all. Not only have they served and defended our nation and our liberties, but they continue to protect, learn, and invent so that we will know greater opportunity. On this Veterans Day, we take pause to give thanks to our veterans and their families for sacrificing so much for so many for so long. America is stronger because of their perseverance and bravery—and our nation would not be the same without their service.”
