WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham issued the following statement in observance of Veterans' Day:

"Today, we come together to honor the service and sacrifice of our nation's brave veterans and their families. Veterans in New Mexico and across the nation answered a call of duty to selflessly protect our country. As we remember and celebrate their service, I hope you will join me in thanking these brave men and women for their courage and commitment.

"Veterans and their families have sacrificed for our freedom and security, however we see time and again, the daunting challenges they face once they return home. Many veterans struggle daily to find employment and financial security, obtain stable and sufficient housing, and manage both the physical and invisible wounds of war. These struggles also greatly impact families and caregivers working with their veteran loved ones as they transition to civilian life. We must continue to care for veterans when they return home and ensure they receive the support worthy of their service and the benefits they have earned.

"As we have seen with their recent two out of five-star rating, the New Mexico VA Health Care System is still failing to provide the high-quality services and care for New Mexico's 160,000 veterans. I am working on legislation to reform poor-performing VA Hospitals, and remain committed to doing everything I can to ensure veterans and their families have the resources, benefits, and care they deserve.

"On this Veterans' Day, let us recommit to our obligation to veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. To all those who have served and continue to serve our nation, thank you."
