Texas Democrats’ Statement on Memorial Day

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement on Memorial Day:

“On Memorial Day, we pay solemn tribute to the veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our country.

“Over the decades, Texans have served, fought, and given their lives in pursuit of the ideals at the heart of our country’s promise: Democracy. Freedom. Equality. Justice. We owe them, their families, and all Texas veterans an immeasurable debt of gratitude for their service. They stood for liberty, and sacrificed their future for the future of others. Their selflessness and courage continue to inspire Texans who serve today.

“After four difficult years, I’m incredibly grateful to have a President who profoundly respects our troops and is working hard every day on behalf of veterans and those who are currently serving. President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden know firsthand the sacrifices military families make. Through the American Rescue Plan, President Biden is delivering for military service members, veterans, and their families — from making sure veterans have the health care they need, to providing key relief and stimulus money to military families, to prioritizing support for veteran-owned small businesses.

“Today, I thank all Texas veterans for their service and sacrifice. I encourage all Texans to take time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country’s ideals. They represent the very best of Texas.”
