Honoring Sacrifice and Service
On Memorial Day we honored the men and women who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the American freedoms that we all cherish. I am especially proud to recognize New Mexicans' long record of service to our nation.
Over the last year, we have lost some of the last surviving members of the World War II generation, including Navajo Code Talkers and Bataan Death Marchers. We will never forget how their immeasurable contributions led to victory of freedom and liberty over totalitarianism and fascism. We also remember those who lost their lives in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and our armed forces serving today at New Mexico's military installations and around the world. Additionally, we honor the strength and resilience of our military families-especially those who lost a loved one, and those who continue to care for a veteran.
My office has helped hundreds of veterans across New Mexico. I encourage you to read and share my latest Veterans Newsletter to learn more about what my office can do to assist veterans.
