Statement: Chair Belinda Biafore on Veterans Day 
“Today we celebrate and honor our veterans. Our servicemen and women sacrifice everything for our freedom and our country. Today, as we should everyday, we honor their courage, their strength, and their sacrifice. Though we know that we can never thank them enough our respect and gratitude must last forever.

Here in West Virginia, we are  very proud, we have  one of the country’s highest per capita rates of military servicemembers and veterans. This speaks volumes of our fellow Mountaineers and the dedication and strength they convey.

As Democrats, we are committed to ensuring that our veterans get the help and the benefits that they deserve. We proudly stand with our veterans and will continue to fight tooth and nail to be sure that they will get the help that they need when they return home to our beautiful Mountain State. We are the Party that doesn’t turn our backs on those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom and our work is far from over.  Our veterans and their families deserve the all the help and all the benefits they need to have the best quality of life.

Today and every day, we stand with our veterans.”
