Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Bob Casey released a statement honoring the brave men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces:
"On Veterans Day, we come together to honor the courageous actions of the brave men and women who have served our country. Veterans represent what’s best about our nation, and we owe a debt of gratitude for their incredible sacrifice. We also owe a great deal to their families who offer vital love and support in the toughest of times.
"To paraphrase what my father, Governor Casey, once said, ‘we pray for military families and their loved ones serving around the globe; but we also pray for ourselves that we may be worthy of their valor.’
"Our Armed Forces have always answered the call to duty, and Veterans should have every opportunity and resource they need when they return home. Among other priorities for our heroes, we must continue to work to ensure that our Veterans have access to quality, timely healthcare and have the tools they need to pursue their educational or employment goals.
"Every day, but especially on Veterans Day, we are grateful for our servicemembers, past and present. Thank you to our Veterans, those still serving and those who have ever loved or supported a servicemember. Our Nation is stronger for your service."
