In commemoration of Veterans Day, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“Generations of courageous Americans have answered our nation's call to serve in the finest military force on earth. Whether at home or abroad, we’ve always counted on those in uniform to keep us safe and protect our freedoms. And just as they put their lives on the line to defend us, we must all do our best to protect our veterans and ensure that they receive the respect, dignity, and best possible care from the country they served.
“Democrats believe that these patriots should never have to worry about transitioning to a good-paying civilian job, pursuing higher education, or receiving quality health care for wounds – mental or physical – sustained in the line of duty. We must never forget their bravery and their sacrifices, and we must always fulfill our moral responsibility to serve them as they have served us.”
