WASHINGTON - Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee released the following statement today:
"As our nation observes this Veterans Day, let us never forget the brave men and women who have served our great nation in uniform. They are the true American heroes and we honor their sacrifice. Let us also pay special tribute to the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who are defending our freedoms around the world today instead of enjoying this celebration with their loved ones. We owe them our gratitude and support for answering their nation’s call to duty and defending the liberty we enjoy every day as Americans. May God bless all of our nation’s veterans and their families."
