Opening Statement of Hon. Zachary T. Space, a Representative in Congress from the State of Ohio

Dear Members of the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees, Commander Barton, and Members of Disabled American Veterans,

I would like to submit for the record my most sincere apologies for my absence this afternoon.  An unexpected family emergency has called me away from my Congressional duties.  While I would like very much to be in attendance today to review the important legislative agenda of Commander Barton and his colleagues at Disabled American Veterans, I must be with my mother on the loss of her husband.   

I appreciate your understanding on this matter.  Please know that I remain committed as ever to the important work of this committee and those that it serves.
