ICYMI: Appreciating Our Military Men and Women Op-Ed by Rep. Westmoreland

In celebration of this Military Appreciation Month, we invite you to check out Rep. Lynn Westmoreland latest op-ed highlighting the importance of celebrating those who risk it all to guarantee our freedoms at home and abroad.

In case you missed it, here are some of highlights from Westmoreland’s op-ed, which was recently published in The Hill.

“For a decade and a half, our men and women in uniform voluntarily put themselves in harm’s way to defend our country against terrorists… Since 2001, more than 2 million American children have had a parent deployed at least once“.

“This month grants us with an opportunity to repay, in gratitude and appreciation, the efforts of our service members and their families

“…This month isn’t just about showing our gratitude to those who serve and protect– it’s about challenging ourselves to do even more for our military members and families“.
