Rep. Barbara Lee Statement for Memorial Day

Oakland, CA Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement in observance of Memorial Day:

“Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the heroic service of our men and women in uniform, as well as pay tribute to our fallen heroes.

“As the daughter of a veteran, I am deeply committed to ensuring all returning service members and their loved ones receive the benefits they have earned. As a member of the spending committee overseeing veterans’ affairs, I will fight to ensure every veteran has a roof over their head, a good paying job, and high-quality healthcare for themselves and their family.

“For many Americans, whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, Memorial Day has a profound and personal significance. My thoughts and prayers are with them and all our service members stationed around the world.”
