REP. VARGAS’ STATEMENT IN HONOR OF MEMORIAL DAY
Washington, D.C. (May 28, 2021) – Today, Rep. Juan Vargas (CA-51) released the following statement in honor of Memorial Day.
"This Memorial Day we pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and remember those who have served our country in the name of freedom and democracy. We also honor the families and communities they left behind. Every day our country is safe, and our children breathe free, is a day our servicemembers and veterans made possible.
"Our commitment to providing high-quality care and benefits to U.S. veterans, troops, reservists, and their families is important, now, more than ever. This Memorial Day, the best "thank you" we can give our veterans is concrete results and relief from this pandemic.
"The American Rescue Plan is helping us address some of these issues, but there is a lot of work ahead of us to ensure that our veterans are getting all the benefits and resources they deserve. I will continue my work in Congress to support our heroes and their families."
Vargas represents California’s 51st Congressional District which includes the southern portion of San Diego County, all of Imperial County, and California’s entire U.S.-Mexico border. Vargas was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012 and is currently serving his fifth term in Congress. He serves on the House Financial Services Committee.
