Rep. Young Honors Our Veterans
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Alaskan Congressman Don Young (U.S. Army 1955-1957) released the following statement today commemorating Veterans Day:
"America would not be the country that we are today if it weren't for the courage and sacrifice of our servicemen and women. They lay their lives on the line day in and day out to defend the freedoms that we take for granted. As Congress wrestles with where to make budget cuts, we cannot forget about our veterans and their families, especially those returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. As someone who served myself, I want to personally thank each and every veteran for their service to this great nation; we are truly great because of your service. May God bless you and your families."
