Pembroke Pines, Fla. (November 11th, 2015) – U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement in honor of Veterans Day:

“On Veterans Day we come together as a nation to honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families.

“The freedoms and way of life we enjoy today have been made possible because our veterans answered the call of duty to protect our values, our national security and those of our allies.

“I am proud to represent so many veterans in Florida’s 23rd District, who continue to make valuable contributions to our community through their careers and their volunteerism.

“As a Member of Congress who sits on the Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for funding for employment, housing assistance and educational opportunities for our veterans. And while we have made great strides in supporting these brave men and women, I join many of my colleagues in calling for increased investments in mental health services and access to VA healthcare to ensure our veterans have the comprehensive support they need as they come home and transition back to civilian life.”
