Press Release

CHICAGO — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) released the following statement to honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces:

“The nearly two million men and women who have served, and are currently serving, in the U.S. Armed Forces protect the civil liberties of all Americans. We know that their sacrifice is great for family and country. On this day we give honor to each and every one of them for their commitment to our nation’s creeds.

“Our country needs our veterans. This weekend, and throughout the year, let us consider the spirit of Veterans Day and reflect upon the vital role of our veterans as they help make our nation what it is today. Though there are not enough words to truly describe how grateful we are for all our veterans have done, we should remain mindful to say ‘thank you’.
