Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Johnson released the following statement in honor of veterans in our community and across the country as we prepare to celebrate Veterans Day. This Saturday, November 11, is Veterans Day when Congresswoman Johnson will co-host a veterans appreciation event:

“I am very grateful for the sacrifices made by our current service members and veterans in our community, including the more than 105,000 veterans in Dallas County alone,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “These men and women of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard are the real heroes who continue to put their lives on the line. Our veterans and their family members deserve our profound gratitude and respect. We are indebted to their willingness to serve and protect our freedom every day.”

“As a granddaughter, daughter, niece, wife and sister of a veteran, I have stood by veterans my entire life and will continue to ensure that they receive the benefits they have hard earned for their service to this great country. We must protect their access to affordable and quality healthcare, and provide them with the resources needed to pursue educational opportunities and quality jobs and when they return home. So, I remain committed to supporting legislation that protects veterans and their families.”

Congresswoman Johnson continued to discuss her plans for Veterans Day, “I hope that you will join me this weekend by honoring our veterans and service members who have given so much to this nation by participating in Vet Fest at the Historic Nance Farm on Saturday, November 11th.”
