Sanders Statement on Veterans Day

BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 10 – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement regarding Veterans Day:

"To all the veterans of this country, we owe you a huge debt of gratitude. You put your lives on hold and on the line to protect our country. To their family members, you have served and sacrificed right alongside them, something I don’t think you get enough recognition for. And to those who lost a service member or veteran, either in conflict or as a result of their service, we may never fully understand your experience, but will do our best to make sure your loved one is never forgotten.

"While we set aside this particular day to recognize our veterans, I believe we must commit ourselves every day to keep America’s promise to them, just as they kept their promise to us. That means our veterans must have access to high quality health care, and we must fight to preserve, protect and improve the VA."
