Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D., today released the following statement in honor of Memorial Day weekend.
"America is forever indebted to the men and women who serve our nation with honor and to those who have bravely made the ultimate sacrifice for the preservation of our freedom. This weekend, all Americans should take time to appreciate our country's service members. We offer our prayers for those who have gone before us and those who continue to fight for our nation, may they return home safely.
"This past week Congress passed the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act, increasing veterans' disability compensation and the Restoring GI Bill Fairness Act to increase the cap on tuition and fees paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This legislation reflects our continued dedication to the men and women who serve our nation."
