Washington, DC – (Friday, May 27, 2011) - Congresswoman Johnson released the following statement honoring our veterans and their families on Memorial Day, which will be observed on Monday, May 30:

“I would like to express my sincere and heartfelt appreciation to our nation’s brave military men and women who are presently serving, the veterans who have served and to all the family members who have lost loved ones while serving our great country. Their sacrifice to our country is remembered everyday by Americans, but especially honored today as we reflect on Memorial Day and remember those service men and women who are no longer with us.

“We can never fully repay our nation’s debt of gratitude to our nation’s veterans, but this week the House of Representatives honored its commitment by passing the National Defense Reauthorization Act that I was proud to support. This bipartisan legislation provides our service men and women with the tools, resources and equipment needed to protect our nation. It also provides pay raises for our troops and strengthens healthcare services for those who are serving and their families.”
