Press Release

November 8, 2013

“Nevada’s heroes have played a critical role in our country’s armed services, from the Air Force pilots deployed from Nellis to the Nevada National Guard’s 1st Squadron, 221st Cavalry Unit that served a tour in Iraq and Afghanistan. Throughout the generations, our democracy has been defended by those who have given so much on our behalf. We can never fully repay our veterans for their service and sacrifice, but we can do more to help these brave men and women regain a foothold in civilian life through access to education, good jobs, and more effective post-service care. As a member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, I have sought to give our veterans and their families those opportunities.

“Today, Veterans Day, is a day for remembering and caring. So take a moment today to reflect on that special family member or friend or stranger who has been in the armed forces, and tell him or her, ‘Thank you for your service.’”
