Cárdenas Veterans Day Statement

WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Tony Cárdenas (CA-29) released the following statement today in recognition of Veterans Day: 

"Today, we honor the brave servicemembers who served our country, protected our freedom, and put their lives on the line to keep us safe at home. Last week, millions of Americans went out and exercised their right to vote. We enjoy this freedom and right because of our brave service members who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.

"Today is about taking a step back and looking beyond our own lives and showing gratitude to the men and women in uniform who keep us safe and free. We owe our veterans an unpayable debt for their service and sacrifice. We honor them with meaningful action and by ensuring that we provide them with the care and support they need when they return home.

"So on this Veterans Day, let us renew our commitment to serving our veterans and their families by delivering more than empty rhetoric. To our veterans and members of our Armed Forces from the San Fernando Valley – we thank you, we salute you, and we commend your bravery. Know that you have a champion in Washington who will always have your backs."
