U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) took to the House floor today to honor America’s military veterans. Below are Marchant’s remarks as prepared for delivery:
“Mr. Speaker, in advance of Veterans Day, I rise to honor all those who have served in defense of our great nation.
“The 24th District of Texas is home to over 38,000 veterans. They come from many walks of life, but they all have one thing in common: They answered the call to serve when our nation was in need.
“As part of my office’s commitment to serving North Texas veterans and their families, we will host our Fourth Annual Veterans Fair this Saturday in Grapevine, Texas.
“This event is dedicated to informing veterans about the programs and services that are available to assist them and their families. It’s also an opportunity for our community to come together and honor our nation’s heroes.
“Thank you to all of our veterans and active military who have put the safety of this nation before their own. We are forever grateful for your service and sacrifice.
“Mr. Speaker, I yield back.”
