Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-AL) released the following statement in observance of Veterans Day, which is observed on November 11th:

“Today, we pay tribute to the brave men and women who have laid down their lives to keep our country safe.  These individuals – men and women, fathers, wives, sons and daughters – have fought and died to protect the values we hold dear as a nation,” states Representative Sewell.  “We owe them a sincere debt of gratitude for their tremendous bravery and selfless sacrifice.”

“That is why it is critically important for Congress to continue to support and provide needed resources to the Veterans Administration (VA) to ensure that our veterans and their spouses or widowers have access to quality health care, good-paying jobs, affordable housing, and other benefits they have rightly earned. We should not deny the very liberties to these American heroes and their families that they have fought to protect.”
