McCarthy: Today We Honor the Brave Patriots Who Have Served Our Country

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) released the following statement marking Veterans Day and to express the debt of gratitude we owe the men and women of our Armed Forces who have served and are currently serving:

“America continues to be a shining city on a hill – a representation of what freedom and a democratic system of government can produce. We have the men and women of our Armed Forces to thank for it. The brave patriots who have served our country deserve our gratitude for the sacrifices they and their families have made to ensure we live in a nation full of endless possibility. I encourage everyone to take a moment to thank a veteran this Veterans Day and to reflect upon the opportunities afforded to us because of their sacrifice. We also remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and today we honor their courage and their devotion to our country.”
