Washington, DC- U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement ahead of Veterans Day:
“On Veterans Day, we come together to honor the courageous actions of our brave men and women, past and present, who have served to defend our nation. Our Armed Forces have always answered the call to duty. Every day, but especially on Veterans Day, I am grateful for our servicemembers, past and present, and I remain committed to ensuring they have every opportunity and resource they need when they return home.
Around Veteran’s Day I am always reminded of something my father once said: ‘We pray for the military families and for their loved ones serving around the globe; we also pray that we may be worthy of their valor.’ So as we rightly praise our veterans in word today, we must also ensure that our actions in Congress and throughout the federal government provide for the needs of our brave veterans.
I look forward to continue working with my colleagues in Congress on the important issues facing our veterans, servicemembers and their families. I hope Pennsylvanians will join me in thanking the veterans and servicemembers for their service and sacrifice and in honoring these heroes throughout the year.”
