LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) marked Veterans Day 2017:

“Today, on Veteran’s Day, we salute all those who have defended our great nation and served in uniform. We say a profound ‘thank you’ for so bravely offering yourself and your services for the betterment of our nation. Whether part of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, you have served and sacrificed greatly to secure the freedom we enjoy here at home. Your commitment to duty and to serve a cause bigger than yourself commands our respect. You continue the greatest traditions of responsible citizens in this republic and are a role model for younger generations of Americans. To the families who have sacrificed alongside our veterans, we say thank you. You provide the love and care necessary for our service women and men to continue their honorable work. I am honored to serve the veterans of my hometown community in Bucks and Montgomery counties, and across the nation. Our gratitude is enduring, our support for you, steadfast. We have your back.”

Earlier this week, Fitzpatrick introduced the Fairness to Veterans for Infrastructure Investment [H.R. 4319] – legislation which levels the playing field in federal contracting for veteran-owned businesses by providing veterans access to existing preferences authorized for transportation projects. Fitzpatrick is also the author of H. Res. 588 which supports National Veterans Small Business Week (October 30 to November 3).
