Chairman Miller Statement Honoring Veterans Day
WASHINGTON, DC – Chairman Jeff Miller released the following statement today in honor of Veterans Day 2013.
"Imagine our lives without the veterans who have bravely defended us. Where might we be if not for the men and women who answered the call to serve each and every time our nation faced a determined enemy? Undoubtedly, America would not stand as tall as she does without the enormous sacrifices of our veterans and their families, which is precisely why Veterans Day is such an important occasion. This weekend and throughout the rest of the year, we should all consider the spirit of Veterans Day and reflect upon the vital role veterans have played in making our nation what it is today. Though there aren't enough words to truly describe how grateful we are for all our veterans have done, two words every veteran deserves to hear are 'thank you.'" – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
