Reid Statement On Veterans Of Foreign Wars (VFW) Day

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement today in recognition of Veterans of Foreign Wars Day:
“For more than 100 years, the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization (VFW) has assisted veterans, their families and the nation.  Like their courageous service on the battlefield, the men and women of the VFW continue to inspire a spirit of national service in pursuit of their selfless mission: ‘honor the dead by helping the living.’  Through community service, advocacy of veterans’ rights, and the support of national defense, the two million members that make up the VFW have made immense sacrifices for our country.  We honor the service they have rendered on distant battlefields, and we are ever mindful of the sacrifices they have made on our behalf.”
