Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE               

Los Angeles - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement in observance of Memorial Day.

“Today we honor Americans who gave their lives in service to our nation. I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in several Memorial Day events throughout my district, including those at the Los Angeles National Cemetery and in Redondo Beach."

"While we pause to remember the memory of our service members who made the ultimate sacrifice, let us also renew our commitment to take care of the Veterans who served alongside them. Earlier this week I introduced the Legal Services for Homeless Veterans Act, which would authorize the Department of Veterans Affairs to enter agreements with third parties to provide pro bono legal services to homeless and at-risk Veterans across the country."

"America is great because every generation we have women and men willing to give their lives to defend the Constitution. Today we honor them.”
