Statement by Texas Democrats on Memorial Day
AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa made the following statement on Memorial Day:
“On Remembrance Day, we pay a solemn tribute to the Veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our country.
“Over the decades Texans have served, fought and given their lives in pursuit of the ideals at the heart of our nation’s promise: democracy. Freedom. Equality. Justice. We owe them, their families and all Texas veterans a debt of immeasurable gratitude for their service. They defended freedom and sacrificed their future for that of others. Their selflessness and courage continue to inspire Texans who serve today.
“After four difficult years, I am extremely grateful to have a President who deeply respects our troops and works hard every day on behalf of veterans and those who currently serve. President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden know firsthand the sacrifices made by military families. Thanks to the US bailout, President Biden is deliver for service members, veterans and their families – from ensuring veterans receive the health care they need, from providing relief and stimulus funding to military families, to priority support for small businesses owned by veterans.
“Today, I thank all of the Texas veterans for their service and sacrifice. I encourage all Texans to take the time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country’s ideals. They represent the best of Texas. “
