Yesterday, Congressman Mike Conaway added his name to a House resolution honoring the service and sacrifice of members of the United States Armed Forces in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn. This resolution publicly recognizes the tremendous personal sacrifices made by over 1.5 million service members and their families. Afterward, he made the following statement:
"It is an honor and a privilege to recognize the brave men and women of our Armed Forces by cosponsoring this important resolution. The sacrifice and service that these service members have so freely given will not be forgotten. I am humbled to recognize on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives the 4,486 American heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice and over 32,000 military personnel who were wounded during these operations."
