Holt Marks Veterans Day
(West Windsor, NJ) - Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) today issued the following statement regarding the nation's observance of Veterans Day:
"Every year at this time, we pause to honor the sacrifices of those who have worn our country's uniform and gone into harms' way to defend us and our way of life. We owe them far more than lofty words, however. We owe them what the country has promised them: timely access to high quality medical care, speedy processing of their disability claims, and all the help they need in making a smooth transition from the military to the civilian world. Our work in Congress will not be done until we have provided full funding for veterans health care, ended the 'Disabled Veterans Tax,' and provided every veteran with the skills they need to obtain work or start their own business."
"On this Veterans Day, my message to New Jersey's veterans and their families is a simple one: thank you for your service and your sacrifice, and may God bless you always."
