Casey Statement on the Ten Year Anniversary of the Iraq War

Washington DC- Today U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on the ten year anniversary of the Iraq War:

“Today we reflect on the 10-year anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War.  On this solemn occasion, I’d like to recognize the sacrifices made by the thousands of Pennsylvanians who served as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.   Of these men and women, 197 never made it home, and those that did return to their families sometimes bore the visible or invisible wounds of war.  We must never forget the sacrifice that our veterans made for our nation.  I remain dedicated in supporting members of our armed forces, our veterans, and their families because they remained dedicated to our nation during times of great adversity and struggle.”
