Press Release:

Today, Reps. Sanford Bishop (D-GA-02) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) introduced a House Resolution to support the goals and ideals of creating a "Military Retiree Appreciation Day." "For many of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines, service does not end with retirement -- they are community members, family, and neighbors to us all," said Congressman Bishop. "And so, Military Retiree Appreciation Day will honor service members' ongoing commitment to the strength and welfare of our nation, even after the uniform has been hung up after retirement." "The North Country is home to more veterans than any district in New York, and I am proud to introduce this resolution to honor those who have spent their careers serving our nation," said Congresswoman Stefanik. "Military Retirees continue to serve as leaders across our communities, and their patriotism deserves to be honored by a grateful nation." Background: America's military retirees represent approximately .5% of its total population. Those who faithfully serve their country for twenty or more years show a dedication to service unrivalled by any other profession. Career military service men and women serve daily with the knowledge that they can be sent anywhere in the world and be asked to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect and defend America's interests and ideals. Their service is voluntary and often requires decades of extreme personal sacrifices. Currently, these consummate professionals are not officially and separately recognized or honored by the government or people of the United States. The bipartisan resolution introduced today honors the prior and continued service of our military retirees by supporting the goals and ideals of a "Military Retiree Appreciation Day." Military retirees display proven leadership and commitment to the principles that make our country great, and they deserve this recognition from a grateful nation. This resolution is supported by the American Military Retirees Association. Click here for the legislative text
