Nov 11, 2016
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Friday November 11 is Veterans Day. Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement:

“First, as an American, I would like to personally thank our veterans and their families for their service. Veterans Day is a reminder of the gratitude and appreciation that we should carry with us on all days, in all seasons, in all communities across the country, for the men and women who have served our country and defended our values in a dangerous world. We must also remember those who did not return home and that this most total sacrifice for others is something all veterans have been willing to make. I am proud to represent tens of thousands of Maryland veterans in Congress and believe that supporting veterans should be one of Washington’s top priorities. We have real work to do to improve VA services, expand and update benefits to reflect changing needs and make sure that veterans and military families can thrive. I encourage any veteran who needs help to contact my office immediately and we will do everything we can to assist them.”

Rep. Delaney is the author of bipartisan legislation to protect veterans from having their credit score negatively impacted by delayed VA payments and bipartisan legislation to expedite access to protected medical leave for working disabled veterans. Local veterans who need help receiving their benefits can call Rep. Delaney’s office at 301-926-0300.
