Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) made the following statement in recognition of Veterans Day:
“On this Veterans Day, we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and remember those who have served our nation in the name of freedom and democracy. By answering the call to serve during our most trying times, they exemplify the very best of our country.
“As we pause to salute these heroes, let us not forget their families who have sacrificed alongside them. During a time when our nation is deeply divided, we should use their example of selflessness and humility to come together to make our country a better place for all.
“As we mark this year’s Veterans Day, I pledge to continue working with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that our veterans are provided with the services they need and rightfully deserve.”
Congressman Alcee L. Hastings serves as Senior Member of the House Rules Committee, Ranking Democratic Member of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, and Democratic Chairman of the Florida Delegation.
