Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) issued the following statement for Memorial Day:
“Every Memorial Day, we come together to pay homage to the brave men and women who tragically lost their lives while serving in our armed forces, in conflicts both at home and abroad. I join communities across Ventura County in honoring, remembering, and celebrating the lives of these brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to our nation. We are reminded every day of their selflessness and dedication to protecting and preserving the freedoms that we hold so dear as Americans.
As the daughter, sister, and niece of men who served, I remain committed to ensuring that all veterans and servicemembers receive the recognition, as well as the benefits and care, that they have earned and deserve. We have a moral imperative to do so.”
