DNC Chair Tom Perez on Veterans Day

In commemoration of Veterans Day, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:

“Today, Americans honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s veterans and their families. At home and abroad, and even long after they’ve hung up their fatigues for good, these brave heroes exemplify the courage and leadership of the American people. And we have a duty to care for them and their families the same way they fought for us. Over 4,000 veterans in the VA system have died because of this pandemic. Nearly 100,000 have been infected. Our veterans deserve a commander-in-chief who understands their sacrifice and will take bold action to protect them from this virus and give them the care and resources they need. President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris know that we owe our warriors nothing less. They will fight for our veterans, their families, and all those in uniform who protect our freedoms every single day.”
