U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32), a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement regarding Veterans Day:
"In local communities across the nation, grateful Americans will gather today to celebrate our servicemen and women who make freedom a reality. I proudly stand with my fellow Americans in honoring our nation's veterans and pausing to reflect on their extraordinary patriotism and courage.
"Veterans Day not only serves as a day to extend our heartfelt gratitude to those who have served this great nation, but also reminds us of our responsibility to provide the resources they need to succeed. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that we properly support those who have selflessly sacrificed their own personal freedoms in exchange for a safer and more prosperous America."
