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 brave men and women who have served our nation valiantly. As we mark Veterans Day, it is not only a time to thank our veterans for their service, but to acknowledge the debt we owe them for protecting us and preserving our freedom. We must ensure that all veterans have what they need when they return home, especially healthcare, education and employment opportunities.
"Around Veterans 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.
"Serving our Veterans requires action, not just words, and I look forward to continuing to work in a bipartisan way to ensure our Veterans and their families receive a level of care and service worthy of their sacrifice. I hope Pennsylvanians will join me in thanking our service members and their families for their sacrifice, and in honoring these heroes today and throughout the year."
