INHOFE VISITS WOUNDED SOLDIERS IN HONOR OF VETERANS DAY
WASHINGTON-U.S. Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.) visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center on Monday, November 10, 2003 and the Veteran's Administration Hospital on Tuesday, November 11, 2003 where he met with wounded men and women of our armed services in honor of Veterans Day.
"Over the last two days, I have had the honor of visiting with some of our wounded soldiers from the war in Iraq some of whom are from Oklahoma," Inhofe said. "These young brave people are dedicated to the cause of this war and are committed to continuing their service." Yesterday, during Inhofe's visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center he spoke with SPC Scott Parks, of Lawton, who was injured when the Chinook helicopter he was on went down near Fallujah, Iraq. "When I spoke with Scott he echoed what all the men and women I have spoken with have said, their morale is high, their spirit is high and they know that our cause is just," Inhofe said.
Today, in honor of Veterans Day, Senator Inhofe visited servicemen at the Veteran's Administration Hospital. "We all see the war on the daily news, but when you speak with these soldiers first hand it gives you perspective on how courageous, dedicated and committed they are," Inhofe said. "They deserve our admiration, respect and gratitude for preserving our freedoms."
