Rep. Lawson Statement on Memorial Day
“As we mark this Memorial Day, we pause to honor the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many of our brave men and women in uniform. We honor them by sharing and remembering their legacies.
“We also honor them by making sure we are doing all we can to care for our veterans when they return home. For it is through their valiant efforts that our democracy lives on, and now more than ever, that is to be honored and cherished.
“One of my priorities in Congress is working to ensure our veterans are getting the help they deserve - from education, to job training, access to health care, and affordable housing. We must never, ever, forget the sacrifice our veterans and their families have made. Every generation has fought to preserve our freedom and defend life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and every generation has lost servicemen and women in that defense. We are grateful for their service to our nation.”
